- The part of J. Aubrey Piper was originally to be played by Lee Tracy, but his contract was terminated by MGM when he insulted a Mexican cadet during the production of Viva Villa! (1934). Spencer Tracy (no relation to Lee) got the part with the help of Frank Morgan, and afterwards signed a long-term contract with MGM.
