In one scene Joan Manion (played by Joan Leslie
) is asked by Fred Atwell - a.k.a. Fred Burton (played by Fred Astaire
) if her boss, Mr. Harriman (played by Robert Benchley
), has ever proposed marriage to her: She replies that he has attempted to numerous times, but keeps getting side-tracked by discussions of such things as the "sex life of polyps". It turns out that in one of Robert Benchley's earliest films he played a "Doctor Benchley" in the film The Sex Life of the Polyp
(1928) where he lectures Women's Clubs on this interesting creature that can change its sex. See more
Joan (played by Joan Leslie
