Beyond the urgency brought on by Preston Sturges' daily updating and completion of the script, the picture was lent a sense of frenzied energy by the rivalry between its stars. Certain he had been deceived into accepting the role, Eddie Bracken was determined to steal the picture. He used every trick he knew to filch the focus from Betty Hutton, not only the tried-and-true maneuver of upstaging her but also developing physical tics that would draw more attention to himself.

I love Ignatz Ratzkywatzky - I named my dog after him.
There are 3 perfect comedy films that I never get tired of watching. In fact I HAVE to watch them each at least twice a year. One: The Bank Dick. Two: Bringing Up Baby. Three: Miracle of Morgan's Creek. Three wacky brilliant movies the like of which will never again be made. Preston Struges was at his peak here.
