Probably Errol Flynn's most uncharacteristic screen appearance occurred in this film when he sang and danced his way through a pub number entitled "That's What You Jolly Well Get". See more »
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 »
What Dr. Schlenna is trying to say is that we are using motion picture names exclusively...
'Motion pi-'! I've been a picture star for years! Wouldn't you call *me* a name?

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.
