According to an interview with Kay Linaker conducted in 2006, during the filming of "Man About Town", the government investigated Jack Benny because he unknowingly bought two bracelets from a jeweler that had been smuggled into the United States. During the investigation, Jack became so distraught that he had to halt filming his part for four days. Jack eventually had to be an exorbitant fine to the government even though he did not know the bracelets had been smuggled. See more »

I have always been a big fan of Jack Benny.I was looking forward to watching this film but what a letdown.It was desperately unfunny.There was absolutely no chemistry between him and his co stars.The musical numbers were poor and badly staged.The plot seemed to be a feeble rip off of A Damsel In Distress.Who thought that Edward Arnold was suitable casting as an English aristocrat?Jack Benny was very good in situation comedy but not really at physical comedy.The acrobat sequence is an embarrassment.Lamour is lacking any spark,maybe she was at her best in a sarong.The whole mess limps along to an ending that makes no sense at all.So as has been said elsewhere this makes "The Horn Blows at midnight"seem like a minor classic.
