In one of the scenes where Eddie Cantor, dressed as an American Indian, is being chased by other men dressed as American Indians, the film negative has been flipped - you can see the signs on store windows are clearly backward/mirror images of what they are supposed to read. See more »
An Indian comes up to me and says it's tough for us Indians. I said, "You don't like it here, why don't you go back where you came from?"

During the war years, the studios made quite a number of all-star, flag-waving extravaganzas -- "Star Spangled Rhythm", "This Is the Army", "Hollywood Canteen".
To me, "Thank Your Lucky Stars" is easily the best of the home-front morale-boosters. The connecting plot featuring Eddie Cantor and the ever-perky Joan Leslie is funny, while the cameo appearances by the first echelon at Warner Brothers are of uniform interest, with many of the stars playing completely unconventional parts. Both Errol Flynn and Bette Davis sing, and quite amusingly too.
