Whilst in the apartment, Stan looks at a newspaper article referencing the Empire State Building in New York. The Empire State Building wasn't built until 1931, but Stan and Ollie supposedly had just returned from the Great War, meaning the year should have been 1917 or 1918 and the Empire State Building was not yet built.

PACK UP YOUR TROUBLES is the second L&H feature. They do a great job, providing straight laughs for over an hour! The supporting cast reads like a "who's-who" of 1930's comedy:Charles Middleton, Jacquie Lyn, Muriel Evans, Billy Gilbert, C. Montague Shaw, George Marshall, Rychard Cramer, James C. Morton, Richard Tucker, Lew Kelly, and other greats such as the immortal James Finlayson as a General. Directed by George Marshall and Raymond McCarey (brother of L&H creator Leo McCarey), Photographed by Art Lloyd. Screenplay and Dialogue by H. M. Walker. A comedy classic.
