Did You Know?
In this early 1930s Pre-Code film, a "double entendre" is used when Scotty and Janet discuss the clock in their honeymoon suite. As Janet gets off the bed and exits to the bathroom, she turns around, begins to take off her robe, and seductively tells Scotty not to forget to wind the clock. A careful listener can hear a message with a totally different meaning. In case you missed it the first time, the gag line is repeated at other times throughout the film. See more
