The revolving bar set at Matt Briggs' house was left over from the W.C. Fields temperance scene from 1942's Tales of Manhattan (1942). As the sequence was eventually cut, Fox was able to utilize the standing set for this film. See more »

along with THE BULLFIGHTERS, their best since Roach
crazy storyline, disjointed scenes..but that never stopped them before.
they run a Dance Studio and the opening scenes are good: Hardy kicking up his heels in a beautifully lit sequence, Stan defying gravity doing his trademark "Pelican dance". their best scene in years involves Robert Mitchum and hood buddy sellin' 'em insurance or ELSE! too bad, and how depressing, though, to watch opportunity after opportunity go by..and here they are even given a cast! Margaret Dumont! Charles Rogers! Daphne Pollard! (the lady who played Hardy's wife in THICKER THAN WATER)...even the guy who later did the voice for Mr. Ed! newcomer/model Trudy Marshall is a-OK, too. why not have Dumont the owner of the studio, constantly confused and exasperated by the decidedly unmethodical Stan and Ollie? all L & H fans should watch this once in a while, despite the flaws.
