Contrary to certain claims, the stairway depicted in the film is NOT the one also seen in the two Laurel and Hardy's comedy shorts, "Hats Off" (1927) and "The Music Box" (1932). A different staircase for "It's Your Move" was utilized although located in the same vicinity where the "Music Box Steps" are in the Silver Lake District of Los Angeles. Known as the Descanso Stairs, they are situated at the intersection of Descanso and Larissa Drives, specifically between the residences of 3217 Descanso Dr. and 3200-3206 Larissa Dr., and one block from Sunset Blvd. which can be seen in the background in several long shots.
