This was the last American screen appearance of Bebe Daniels, who, in 1910, began playing child parts at the age of nine. Post-Hollywood, she would act in just five English films released from 1936-55. In all of these features but one--The Return of Carol Deane (1938)--she co-starred with her husband and partner on British records, radio and television, Ben Lyon. See more »
They may be trite, but these behind-the-scenes getting into movies stories are a lot of fun--especially when we see a typical 1935 Fox soundstage, a 30s laundry plant, a typical 30s neighborhood theatre and a long streetcar sequence played by Mitchell & Durant.
Ray Walker later appeared on various 50s TV shows, but never made it big in Hollywood. Great supporting cast includes Hattie McDaniel, Bebe Daniels in her last US picture and Rosina Lawrence, who was working at Hal Roach Studios at the time as the Little Rascals school teacher.
