Hope makes an obscure joke about the Chicago musicians union. He shows Crosby his snake-charmer instrument and says, "Hey, I've been playing this flute all night. Have to clear it with Petrillo." Petrillo was James Petrillo, the heavy-handed president of the Chicago Musician's Union. See more »
Although the ships' wheels are roped to the rudder and affixed to the deck strongly enough to withstand a storm, when their boat hit the rock, the wheel mounting falls to the side, clearly not attached to anything. See more »

From the very first Road picture Hope and Crosby were known for their ad-libbing. In fact when they guested on each other's shows the two of them would take the script and insert some of their own lines to try and catch the other off-guard.
In this Road picture I will swear that the moment the boys and Dotty Lamour were washed ashore on the proverbial south sea island, the picture is one long ad-lib. I am sure the director said, here's the plot situation just make it up as you go. It's got that kind of spontaneity.
Look for 'guest' appearances by Jane Russell, Humphrey Bogart, Martin and Lewis and Bob Crosby in this wacky romp.
Says Dotty: "I love you Bob, I love you Bing, my heart's in a real wing ding." So do we all.
