Trivia

Bert Wheeler and Robert Woolsey were originally scheduled to star in a college spoof entitled "Frat Heads", but with the success of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy's The Devil's Brother (1933) and Roman Scandals (1933) with Eddie Cantor, RKO decided to make a costume period piece. All that remains of "Frat Heads" are a few publicity stills. See more »

Quotes

Bob: Hi there, Jen! Doggone, what a beautiful dress you have on!
Lady Genevieve: My dressmaker says it's the coming thing.
Bob: Heh! It must be coming--because there's a lot of it that hasn't arrived yet.

Costume Capers With Mr. Wheeler & Mr. Woolsey
26 November 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

A Duke's fleeing fiancée & a brutal Baron's wayward wife find unexpected help from two COCKEYED CAVALIERS.

This was the most lavish film to star the comedy team of Wheeler & Woolsey (Bert Wheeler is the short fellow with the curly hair; Robert Woolsey is the skinny guy with the cigar) and it is a funny, frantic farce from start to finish. With a plot full of mistaken identities, distressed damsels, ferocious boars & goofy chases, Director Mark Sandrich never allows the pace to slow down for long.

Pert Dorothy Lee & beautiful, doomed Thelma Todd more than hold their own with the Boys and their antics. Robert Greig, as the Duke, is the perfect picture of a very obese sensualist. Noah Beery, as the Baron, is wonderful, as usual, as a beefy bully.

Movie mavens will spot Franklin Pangborn as a harmonious town crier and Billy Gilbert as a jolly innkeeper, both unbilled.

The Boys introduce the boisterous tavern song 'And The Big Bad Wolf Was Dead' - during which Beery gets to unleash his impressive basso profundo. Miss Lee & Hot Toddy join the Boys in trilling 'Dilly Dally.'
