Trivia

This short marks the return of legendary comedy director Del Lord. He was brought back to Columbia's shorts department in 1946 to direct additional two-reelers for producer Hugh McCollum, especially ones that starred Hugh Herbert since he refused to work with fellow director Edward Bernds. Lord would leave the studio for good in 1950. See more »
