The amphibious airplane Whitey takes to Cuba is a Sikorsky S-42. It was ordered by Pan Am and introduced in 1934. Only ten were built, all for Pan Am. It could carry 32 passengers in four compartments and 4 or 5 crew members at a cruising speed of 150-160 mph and had a range of 1,200 to 1,900 miles, depending on version (there were three).

When the wife sits down to breakfast she is wearing gloves. She is not as she is walking from the bedroom before, or after when she leaves the kitchen. See more »
I adore the films in which Clark Gable and Jean Harlow starred opposite one another, and although this isn't my personal favorite - it is a very good and must-see movie. Harlow excels in her dramatic role as the highly-efficient, dependable and beautiful secretary to Gable's character of company executive. Myrna Loy gets on my nerves as the jealous yet believable wife. There are several awesome and memorable scenes. This movie shows us that not everything in life is at it appears to be. I found the interaction between wife and secretary to be particularly good. Overall, I highly recommend this movie and the cast is top-notch!
