The working title of this film was Camp Nuts. Several reviews commented that the characters portrayed by Jackie Gleason and Jack Durant were patterned after popular radio comedians Bud Abbott and Lou Costello. The picture was refused an export license by the Office of Censorship of the Los Angeles Board of Review, according to materials contained in the National Archive in Washington, D.C. This title was previously used by Columbia in 1926 for a Frank Capra-directed film starring Harry Langdon, but the stories are otherwise unrelated (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1921-30; F2.5824).
