Modern prints carry the Paramount logo before the opening credits and after the closing credits due to the fact that the film is now owned by Paramount, who bought the rights in order to produce the remake Riding High (1950). See more »
This movie is a pleasure, from start to finish. The supporting cast is a pleasure, Warner Baxter gives a fine performance and Myrna Loy made this movie just before she played Nora Charles in THE THIN MAN -- Capra figured out how to direct her and MGM reaped the benefit.
