Among the songs cut from the version which presently survives in in the Warner Bros. library, and which is occasionally shown on Turner Classic Movies, is What Would I Care, sung by Bernice Claire & Jack Whiting at the end of reel five, and now abruptly missing in action. See more »

The original 80-minute version,a full musical, was only released outside of the United States. Most of the musical numbers were cut for the domestic version. It is unknown whether a print of this longer version still exists, although the complete soundtrack to the International Sound Version (which includes all of the original songs) survives on Vitaphone discs at the UCLA Film and Television Archives.

Top Speed has both Joe E. Brown and Jack Whiting as a pair of order clerks at a
brokerage house who decide to see how the other half lives. They pose as young
society blades while Brown is supposed to deliver an order which he misplaces.
Whiting falls for millionaire heiress Bernice Claire and she him. But will it hold
once she finds out who he is. As for Brown he's got entertainer Laura Lee very
interested in him.
The climax is a motorboat race which is quite the comic event. Evinrude's motors
really take a pounding from Brown. And from Frank McHugh in one of his
early films where he plays a perpetually soused millionaire/inventor.
A good one for Joe E. Brown fans.
