A few cast members in studio records/casting call lists for this movie were not seen in the final print. These were (with their character names, if any): Bobby Caldwell (Happy as a Boy), William Demarest (Ringmaster), and William B. Davidson. Tom Dugan was also not seen in the print, but he was credited in position 11 as "Mac." See more »
This is the first Joe E. Brown film I've seen, other than "Some Like It Hot"( which, of course, falls into a whole other category, that of "classic")and although it is a rather dated and pedestrian comedy of the 30s, it has a certain innocent charm. I especially appreciated the fact that he did most of the stunts in the film. He had been a circus acrobat embarking on a film career, and it is apparent. A subplot involving a female impersonator, and "Happy's" infatuation with her/him is not as outre as it sounds, becoming merely a prank played on him by the (clearly) masculine impersonator. Still, an interesting curio in terms of what was highly popular with moviegoers of the mid-1930s, and a movie younger kids might find quite hilarious.
