The sequence where J. Carroll Naish breaks into the store to steal the coat was shot after it was decided to cut the Fields episode and substitute the shorter Niah sequence. See more »
The small single engine plane flown by J. Carroll Naish after he robs the charity event could not possibly have carried enough gas to fly him from New York to the Deep South, where the coat gets thrown from the plane. See more »
Excellent film in the genre. I agree with the previous comments with one addition. One cannot ignore the historical significance of the final scene. The last scene features the great bass singer Paul Robeson, celebrated singer-turned-actress Ethel Waters, and the memorable Eddie 'Rochester' Anderson. The scene also has the music of Hall Johnson and the Hall Johnson singers. With this stellar cast of talent the film finishes by showcasing some of the finest black talent ever in the business. Finding good recordings of the arrangements of Hall Johnson by his singers on film is very difficult to do. Here we have it included in a very entertaining film.
