The War Department Motion Picture Board of Review initially rejected the film for release because the story misrepresented the Army Intelligence Division as engaging in espionage. After studio revisions, the film was still refused approval because the Army said that Kay Kyser
's character would never be called into the Intelligence Service without qualifications and training. Producer Harold Lloyd
suggested that Kyser get the orders from a mixup of names, but that revision was still rejected because the Army did not want a commissioned officer to be made to be the object of ridicule. A further revision having Kyser decommissioned and entering the Intelligence Service as a civilian was finally approved by the War Department. Additional scenes were filmed in late February 1942 to make the changes in the film. See more
