Near the end of the movie when Red Skelton, as Louis, has an arrow stuck in his rear-end, as he pleads for it to be removed he cracks: "Hurry up, this thing is starting to pick up several radio stations already". Coincidentally, three decades later his co-star Lucille Ball went public claiming she could hear radio programs directly in her head when driving near radio transmission towers. She explained that the metal fillings in her teeth detected strong radio signals making them audible to her. See more »

[about May Daly]
Isn't she wonderful?
What's so wonderful about her? Take away her eyes, her nose, her lips, and what have you got? A blank expression.

Supremely awful if you expect anything beyond a collection of skits and musical numbers. This movie reminds me of those dinners we create from rummaging through the fridge and pulling out all the odds and ends that need to be used before they go bad.
Or... it's like the end of the fiscal year and everybody's trying to use up the last of the budget so they won't let anything go to waste and lose that amount in the next budget...
Or... it's like how porn makes a half-hearted attempt at plot and story line, but we all know it's just a vehicle for... you know.
But really - I have this vision of the studio execs in an office with all the contracts where they have to put performers in one more movie, all the bills for expensive costumes that needed to have every penny's worth squeezed out of them, all the scripts and musical numbers that were cut from other movies, and tossed the whole mess into the air. Then they picked everything up in random order and shouted, "Lights! Camera! Action!"
