Trivia

Bud Abbott and Lou Costello were engaged in an acrimonious contract dispute with Universal Pictures during the making of this film. As a result, they refused to do re-shoots and every day, at exactly 4:00 p.m., whether they were in the middle of a scene or in the middle of a line, they would cease working and go home.

Universal was so anxious to get a new Bud Abbott and Lou Costello film into theaters that they sped up the production by bringing in a second director, Erle C. Kenton (who directed at least two production numbers, uncredited) and created the climatic chase sequence using footage from Never Give a Sucker an Even Break (1941). The rushed production schedule made this the most expensive Abbott and Costello film up to that time.
