Trivia

A close examination shows that Stan and Ollie never share a scene with Thelma and Zasu. While there is some dialogue interaction and shots of Thelma throwing a vase which cuts to it landing near Ollie's head and a shot of the back of a blonde charging at them with another nicknack, it's a very brief shot. There's then a cut to a hallway with a shot of Stan and Ollie scrambling along then down a staircase as more junk is thrown at them. No one is seen doing the throwing . It would appear that Stan and Ollie shot there part when it was convenient for them and it was cut into the film later. See more »

Coney Island Is the Pitts
14 January 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Thelma Todd and Zasu Pitts bemoan the fact that every time they have a date, it seems the guys want to take them to Coney Island. While this amusement park was a hot spot for young people, it was probably the same old same old. We get scenes of the two begrudgingly trying to look like they are having fun. Dating was interesting because these two were at the mercy of the guy who asked them out. They are both interesting actress. I remember Zasu in Erich Von Stroheim's epic movie "Greed." In that she plays a woman who becomes obsessed with her savings. Mostly she was a gawky comedy actress. This is lightweight but probably best remembered for the two guys that show up at her door at the conclusion of the film.
