Trivia

In an outtake which appears in the Warner Club's Breakdowns of 1937 (1937) blooper reel, Dick Foran attempts to mount the saddle of his horse "Smoke", only to fail and angrily shout, "I can't raise my ass off the ground!" Subsequently, the blooper became an annual tradition of the "Breakdowns" series, appearing as the climatic clip up until "Blow-Ups of 1946" (1946). In these repeats, Foran's audio was slightly altered to say, "I still can't raise my ass off the ground!" See more »

No wonder the spies they sent out never came back!
9 February 1999 | by (Springfield, VA) – See all my reviews

This is perhaps the dumbest spy movie I've ever seen. Everything possible is done to violate basic security procedures.

Maybe Civil War era spies weren't as sophisticated as they are now (or as the average movie fan), but it's impossible to imagine that they'd have been as stupid as they are depicted in this film. Maybe the script was written for Wheeler and Woolsey.
