The director of the Production Code Administation (PCA) had MGM delete several gags that suggested Margot was pregnant, since, he said, illegitimacy could not be the basis for a comedy. See more »
When Jeff Thompson appears he is holding some neck ties in his left hand as he is talking to a member of the ship's crew. When he turns around in the next shot he is seen placing an oil painting down with several others. The neck ties disappeared and in their place a painting materialized. See more »
Interesting title and top-name talent, including Myrna Loy and Melvyn Douglas. But what an utterly inane script. This could have been such a great story, about a woman who needs a man to pretend to be her husband, with all sorts of interesting and plausible zany screwball complications. But instead, we get Myrna pushing the lie that she's married and getting away with it, due to the flimsiest of circumstances. And the reason given for her creating a phantom husband? She needs to be married in order to be an executive! This would've worked better if she was a closeted lesbian or if she was trying to prevent her family from arranging a marriage with a guy she did not love. Instead, we get all this other hooey.
