'Halliwells' stated that the film was a "modernized and simplified version of . . . Unfaithfully Yours (1948) . . . with only one plot instead of three", whilst similarly, 'Allmovie' declared that "the plot is simpler and more straightforward than the original version [of Unfaithfully Yours (1948)], in which the conductor harbored three separate elaborate fantasies".
Dudley Moore, who plays an orchestra conductor in this film, and had played the orchestra conductor for the production of "The Mikado" featured during the climax of Foul Play (1978), about ten years after that movie's release, would play Ko-Ko on stage in Jonathan Miller's production of "The Mikado" in Los Angeles.
