According to the Internet Movie Car Database, Cosmo Topper who if one remembers, always had an eye for special automobiles, had Eddie driving his 1936 Mercedes SSK throughout the film. This was an exotic (and expensive) car from the era. Mercedes ended manufacture of the model in 1941.
The crashed cab is identified as a 1936 De Soto, Movie fans recognize this as a common Taxi used in films of that time, ergo the De Soto Cab Company.
A treat is a look at a 1935 Packard Super Eight Sport Phaeton. See more »
When Cosmo, Gail and Eddie are walking towards the house in the snow, Eddie stops walking putting Gail to Cosmo's left (she grabs his arm). In the next shot a tree branch on Cosmo's right moves as if Gail moves it, but Cosmo still has his left arm raised as if Gail was holding his arm. See more »
What's that sound?
It's the waves. Angry waves. Day after day, night after night, they beat with savage fury against the black rocks below. For twenty years they've been calling... calling... calling to someone who never answers.
Just like the Pot of Gold program.

I often watch films like this with a real sense of detachment. It isn't that I don't enjoy them; it's that they seem dated and irrelevant to me. The cast of this film doesn't let that happen. First of all, everything is played tongue-in-cheek. Except for the bad guys, who are themselves parodies of humorlessness and the leading lady, everyone is a viable character. From Topper to his wife (Billie Burke, the good witch in "The Wizard of Oz; she is wonderful as the flighty matriarch); from Joan Blondell, the ghost, seeking the reason for her death; to Eddie "Rochester" Anderson, who actually makes a reference to working for Mr. Bennyand keeps finding himself falling down a well where there is a sea lion; to the terrific slow burns of the police detective. It all works wonderfully. I know it's not one of the great comedies of the century, but I laughed out loud several times, even though I was watching alone. This is a delight and not to be missed.
