Walter Schumann's score for this film features a recurring, five-note "Dum-da-DUM-Dum, DAAAAAH" motif, often used to punctuate moments when Ted and Tommy are in danger, that starting in 1949 would be immortalized as the theme for the "Dragnet" radio show and, later, both television series (Dragnet (1951), Dragnet 1967 (1967)).

I love Bud and Lou but I hate their feature films - except this one! All the stuff they did for Universal had them playing 2nd banana to some two-bit love situation. Donald Curtis, Dick Foran - who cares! I watched A&C for THEM! - not some grade Z romantic comedy with them occasionally stepping in for comic relief! "Noose" is obviously what their TV series pulled from. The boys doing all their shticks from their vaudeville days - and it works...BOY does it work! I loved their TV series because it was just THEM and they were unencumbered by the external plot devices! "Noose" is, in my humble opinion, their best film.
