The lead role was originally set to be played by then-German superstar O.W. Fischer, but he dropped out. The official reason was "unbridgeable differences" between him and the director. Fischer later declared the actual reason was his loss of memory during shooting, what had to be kept secret. See more »
I agree with a few of the posters here (Native Texan, Conreb, Gary Renfield), for I also enjoyed the second version much better than the first, because the first one did seem to be a 'darker' much more politically correct version.
While William Powell and Carole Lombard are considered to be excellent actors, David Niven, June Allyson, and Jay Robinson are equally as talented in their 'updated' roles. I find it very sad that movies like these are no longer presented these days, when we seem to need all the laughter we can get these days, a movie such as this would help to lift many a dark spirit.
I can't wait to see it presented on DVD (instead of VHS) like the 1936 version is right now.
