Trivia

Three cast members in studio records/casting call lists did not appear or were not identifiable in the movie. These were (with their character names): Dick Powell (Customer), Irving Bacon (Cook) and Inez Palange (Italian Woman). Since Richard Powell is in the cast, it is most likely the listing of Dick Powell refers to him, since he is a Bar Customer. See more »

Four stars, four hooves!
30 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I Tivo-ed this one because it features Margaret Lindsay -- I've liked her in all her movies, but they're aren't that many of them.

About a half-hour in, though, I was about to give up it -- it has a great cast, but you've seen them all playing the same parts in better movies.

Then, suddenly, one fleecy performer took this movie into her hooves and made it her own. Who was that talented sheep thespian who portrayed Eloise, the Hugh Herbert character's pet sheep?

I sheepishly admit that she won me over -- she had me "Baaaaaaaahhh." If Asta the terrier could make so many movies, why not Eloise?

So tune in, if only to enjoy perhaps the only screwball comedy with a Merino movie star.
