The giant vases in the set of the Pelican Club were a last-minute inspiration of art director Ernst Fegté. He had originally commissioned legendary sculptor Tony Duquette to do large statues for the set, but producer Samuel Goldwyn, who'd approved the sketches of Duquette's sculptures, decided he didn't like them once they were actually built. Eventually Fegte arranged to sell Duquette's sculptures to MGM and thought of using the giant vases to replace them. See more »

This is one of my favorite movies of all time, yes it is a little nostalgic for me, but even as an adult I find this movie genius! It's hilarious, witty, and has great songs! Danny Kaye is fantastic playing the twin brothers that are total opposites; the brother who's a nightclub singer,"Buzzy", is murdered and keeps trying to communicate with his bookworm brother which is what really lends to the comedy of this movie. Yes the story is kinda ridiculous, but thats the FUN of it! The scenes where Buzzy is trying to get his brother to go to "Prospect Park" and what takes place afterward are so funny!! No one can surpass the incredibly funny sneezing opera singer or the quirky "Bali" song performed with Vera Ellen. If you like silly comedy, you'll LOVE this--I do!!
