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 »

A silly premise for a funny movie with a wonderful cast.
5 June 2004 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Ruth Donnelly, a solid supporting actress in literally dozens of films, went to Hollywood when the Great Depression hit Broadway [where she was established as a young character woman (GOING UP et al.)and near where she had made a few silent films] with a plan to try movies for six months to a year. She came back to the East Coast some three decades later, figuring that her career was over ... and replaced Patsy Kelly in NO, NO, NANETTE on Broadway. Ruth was a true lady ... and one of the best friends anyone could have! I adored her. You haven't lived until you've sat next to Ruth during a special screening of THE MERRY WIVES OF RENO and listened to her asides about the film and the other actors in it. No bitchiness; that was not Ruth's style. But ... funny?! You know it! Guy Kibbee played her husband and Glenda Farrell was a co-star. Ruth, who had not seen the film (this screening was sometime in the '80s) since its initial release, could remember every scene and every moment. She was truly a remarkable talent, a remarkable lady, and a remarkable friend. I miss her greatly.
