Trivia

Universal had smash hits with Bud Abbott's and Lou Costello's service comedies. With this film (originally titled "Road to Montezuma") they tried to duplicate the box-office success that Paramount was having with the Bing Crosby and Bob Hope "Road" pictures. The experiment worked and this film exceeded the box-office grosses of their service comedies to become Abbott and Costello's biggest hit to date.
