Trivia

The film is largely based on the 1948 Broadway play, "The Silver Whistle," rewritten as part of the Mr. Belvedere film series. The film retains the names of nearly all the characters in the play but the lead character is changed as Mr. Belvedere was not a character in the play. The lead in the play was Oliver Erwenter, a romantic hobo who wanders into the old folks' home. The characters of Erwenter and Belvedere are quite different although the plot is essentially the same.

For Whom Mr. Belvedere Tolls
1 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The fact that Clifton Webb is posing as another character and they call him by that name throughout the entire picture makes him less Lynn Belvedere and more something (someone) else. I understand that the character is working undercover, but I think this is because they had used a stage play as the basis for this film, and in the play, the character is not Belvedere.

What I do like about this last sequel in the series is that it once again proves Mr. Webb is the best fish-out-of-water in movies. You can put him into any situation with any assortment of odd characters, and he stands out spectacularly. There were hundreds of other situations they could have thrown him into, and when you think about it, the Belvedere franchise could have gone on long as Blondie.
