At the beginning of the "Stanley Steamer" segment Richard Miller (Mickey Rooney) lights the burner in the steamer then gets in and drives away accompanied by several explosions from under the hood. A Stanley Steamer took several minutes to develop steam and could not be driven immediately, also there was nothing under the hood but a burner and a boiler neither of which would cause explosions of the type shown.

Mankind was better off when lived in the Dark Ages. When everybody went around naked!

I love Mickey Rooney in this movie. The people who have said he overacts in this film are not correct. Rooney never overacts. He puts his whole heart and soul into a picture. What's wrong with that?? Anyhow, this film is very nice. Mickey does and excellent job. The color and the set up are beautiful. This is truly another great MGM musicals. I personally like this movie better than Ah Wilderness because it showcases more of Mickey. I'm a Mickey Rooney fan and I think he was one of the most talented actors of Hollywood. I truly enjoy his work and appreciate his talent!
