Did You Know?


The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

Hollywood and vine - a great location
8 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First of all, critic db Burroughs, who didn't seem to know what he was watching, didn't know who he was watching. The actor he called Frank Morgan was Ralph Morgan, Frank's brother. Read the credits.

Producers Releasing Corporation usually made Monogram look like MGM, but every now and then they came out with a gem.

I'm fairly familiar with the studio. My father had a one man printing press on the lower east side - Active Printing, yet. Most of his work were one sheeters for clothing manufacturers, but he also printed sheet music for some of the biggies around 52nd St. - that's how I met W. C. Handy - and he did the NYC work for PRC.

This Producers Releasing Corp. item was certainly pretentious-less and, certainly a helluva lot of fun, at times, completely nutty

There was enough corn to fill a couple of Del Monte crates, and most of it produced a lot of laughs.

More laughs from a cast of some of the funniest character actors of the time, essentially playing themselves. The topper, of course, was Franklin Pangborn, always put upon, and, thankfully, given more time in this flick.

Making the most of a little time on screen was Dewey Robinson who always played a not-too-bright tough. His love of a banana surprise was a hoot.

The leads were just fine. James Ellison who played leads in a few major musicals but had no staying power, was coupled with Wandy McKay, a cutie beauty who kept very busy but did not top major marquees. The pair had good on-screen chemistry.

The star, of course, was good old Daisy, on loan from the Bumstead family. Button cute, it did every doggie trick in the books. This movie was made before movie animals talked. Kids today must think animals have mastered the English language.

Bottom line - this, obviously, was a low-budgeter, but who cares? It did what it set out to do - created a lot of laughter.
