The final climax of the picture on board of the ship between Harold and Vance was basically reworked from Harold Lloyd's The Kid Brother (1927). The film was also shot with a silent film camera to re-create the Lloyd silent technique and the sound effects and dialogue were recorded in post-production. See more »

Came upon this movie which I had never heard of while channel surfing during an episode of insomnia. This was one of the most fun & funny movies I have ever seen! You will be constantly riveted as the scenes move fast and the comedy is clever and extremely well done! The cast is excellent and I found myself laughing out loud over and over again! Was disappointed when it was over as it went way too fast! Sort of like going on a great ride at an amusement park and wanting to go on it again! I would highly recommend this movie to anyone as it is refreshing to see such good acting and fun comedy! I can't wait to see it again!
