Harold Lloyd sued Universal Pictures for plagiarism over this film. He claimed that much of the story was lifted from several of his early films, which had been written and/or directed by Clyde Bruckman, the writer of this film. The court agreed with Lloyd and awarded him damages of $100,000. See more »
Always cast as themselves in movies, the Andrews Sisters seemed to be everywhere to help young people get out of romantic jams and deal with obstacles in their way financially or domestically. Here, they help pal Martha O'Driscoll get together with the nephew (Noah Beery Jr.) of a crabby millionaire (George Barbier) she befriends after a ticket she threw out of the window for a handsome man to catch is caught by the crusty rich man. After being thrown out of the movie theatre where they cause a disturbance, O'Driscoll is hired by him to find out if his nephew is worthy of his inheritance, and naturally romance ensues. The Andrews Sisters come on for several rousing songs, most notably "Is you is or is you ain't my baby?" with another song having references to their earlier hit, "Pennsylvania Polka". The result is a flimsy plotted movie that strikes a cord with several comic moments and that singing style that only the Andrews Sisters could have.
