Trivia

During a scene that called for Shirley Temple to hold a tea party in a barn, a mule in the barn began eating the sugar cubes on the table. Director Henry Hathaway recalled, "Shirley was irritated and tried to shoo him away. Then this mule got irritated. He turned around, and with his two back legs he hauled off at her with a kick. Shirley ducked and he missed, but instead of stopping or running away, she strode over and kicked the mule back." See more »

Real Tough Guys depicated in this movie. Great acting and good action sequences for 1933. How many movies can you see likes of Randolph Scott, Shirley Temple, John Carradine, Buster Crabbe and The General from "I Dream of Jeanie" all in one movie! Really recommend this one!
