One of over seven hundred Paramount Pictures productions, filmed between 1929 and 1949, which were sold to MCA/Universal in 1958 for television distribution, and have been owned and controlled by Universal ever since. Local sponsor interest was minimal, and its initial television broadcasts were few and far between. One of its earliest airings took place in Miami Saturday, April 2, 1960 on Comedy Playhouse on WTVJ (Channel 4). It was released on DVD February 4, 2003 as one of three George Burns and Gracie Allen films, and again November 15, 2016 as a single as part of the Universal Vault Series. See more »
George Burns' character Name is shown onscreen as "George Edward", but "Edwards" is consistently spoken as his surname. See more »
W.C. Fields at his finest (for about five minutes)
The plot's pretty lame, George and Gracie are okay (a few shining moments, but nothing spectacular), and the jokes aren't all that outstanding, but there is a five minute sequence with W.C. Fields attempting to shoot pool that is one of the funniest five minutes ever put to celluloid. I howled at this scene as I have rarely howled at anything in my life. The entire movie is worth a watch for this scene alone.
