The pool is the same one that can be seen in the musical number "By a Waterfall" from the Warner Bros. production "Footlight Parade", also released 1933. In this film, the scenes there are photographed with a different camera angle and while reusing the song "Shanghai Lil" from that other film. See more »
Approx 4 minutes in: (While Alison is talking with Harrier Brown) The placement of the crane, and the puffs of dark smoke outside the window change abruptly; it is obvious that the filming was not done in a continuous take. See more »
This is a wonderful movie! The Art Deco sets are great - especially Miss Drake's house. (High up in the entry hall there is a balcony with a live organist!). Here are some facts: The assembly line for the "Drake" automobile is actually footage of the assembly line for the 1932 Plymouth. That beautiful town car she travels in is a Cord L-29 (as it pulls away listen to that beautiful whine of the front-wheel-drive transmission). George Brent drive a 1929 Packard. (Guess my obsession!)
