Trivia

A real historical character, wealthy mining magnate and U.S. Senator George Hearst (Moroni Olson) appears in one scene, joking about how you know when you've found gold. He then mentions that his son "Willie" wants to take over the running of The San Francisco Examiner, but expresses doubt that there's any money in newspapers. That's an in-joke referring to William Randolph Hearst, who had built a vast news empire by the time this film was produced. The younger Hearst's own production company, Cosmopolitan, made the film.

A word in support of George
28 May 2014 | by vernc1See all my reviews

A number of reviewers fault the casting of George Brent in this film. In defense of Warner Brothers, at the time that this film was cast Flynn wasn't quite Flynn yet, and George Brent was a reliable first lead in costume dramas. It's true that I see more sparks between Mickey and Minnie Mouse than between George and Olivia in this film, but the casting must have seemed a good idea at the time. Recall that Warners seriously considered George for the lead in Captain Blood.

The film is entertaining to old timers for the casting of so many old reliable and familiar faces. I wish Willie Best had had a chance to play a serious role just once.

George Hayes was obviously transitioning to his Gabby persona, previously he had specialized in villainy.
