Several cast members in studio records/casting call lists did not appear or were not identifiable in the movie. These were (with their character names): William Haade and Jack Stoney (Truck Drivers), Arthur Space (Director), Jay Wilsey (Stage Driver) and Chick Collins (Bus Driver). One truck (causing an accident) was seen, but the driver was hidden. The bus had an unidentified female driver. A modern source lists Hallam Cooley as the Barker, but that role was played by Brooks Benedict. See more »
Although the sign outside the building reads "Arthur Hurry's School of Dance: Laurel and Hardy Proprietors" on the outside, inside the door says "Laurel & Hardy's School of Dance." See more »

Though generally regarded as one of their weakest films, this has a fair quota of laughs. Stan's "dancing" at the beginning is amusing and Robert Mitchum has a good cameo "selling" the boys insurance. Best scene is where they try to hide from Margaret Dumont, eventually launching her husband into the swimming pool.
