Stan Laurel once remarked that Richard Cramer, seen here as the abusive foster father, had absolutely no sense of humor, and played everything straight. Stan used him when he needed a serious character who wouldn't try to get a laugh.

One scene depicts Jackie Lyn cowering and crying alone in a room while foster father Richard Cramer abuses his wife in an off-screen room. We can hear the wife crying and pleading while Cramer shouts and overturns and breaks furniture. It's implied that the same has happened to little Jackie. It's a very disturbing scene, especially in a Laurel and Hardy comedy, and early television censored it or cut it out completely. It was restored for television syndication in the 1980s.
