The dog, "Atlas," is listed in the opening credits, but is missing in the final end credits. Hence the opening credits are listed first, followed by those end credits not yet listed. See more »
When Topper loses control while driving the sports car, we see him in closeup, then in long shot careening up a hill, between trees. It is obvious that it is not Roland Young because he is bald and the stunt driver has dark hair. See more »

After creating enough mayhem in the life of Cosmo Topper in the first Topper film, Marian Kerby comes back from the afterlife to do a little more damage than before. She means well of course and by chance things do work out in the end.
Roland Young as Topper, Constance Bennett as Marian, and Billie Burke as the ditzy but patient Mrs. Topper are back again. Cary Grant as George Kerby is here too, but only in a flashback from the original Topper movie. The flashback occurs when Topper is on the witness stand in a divorce case as Billie Burke is filing for divorce. Topper takes the stand and tries to explain that wasn't a real woman in his room, just an other world spirit.
Judge Spencer Charters won't grant a divorce, but come back the next day he might sign some commitment papers. So Billie Burke and her friend Verree Teasdale are off to France. Now it becomes clear what Marian Kerby is back on terra firma for.
Connie and Roland are off to France where they have to deal with fussy hotel managers and pretentious gigolos like Franklin Pangborn and Alexander D'Arcy.
Best scenes in the film, in the casino with Paul Porcasi as the manager and in the bar with Paul Hurst as bartender.
It's not as good as the original Topper film, but still has a lot of laughs left in the old spirit.
