There's nobody named "Peggy" in the cast, that's "Peppy" the tall jitterbug clown-dancer.

Plus, "Peanuts" is not playing "himself" but "herself," she's the tiny jitterbug dancer.

The team were called "Peppy and Peanuts" and they appear in a couple of soundies and two films, very obscure, but were once popular on the burlesque circuit as burlesque included comedy dance teams pretty regularly.

They had a really a charming act, and it's great to see part of it preserved in this little film. How sad they're so forgotten, and even miscredited.

The film also provides a chance to see part of the act of Mike Riley and His Musical Maniacs. The "Crying" routine was one of his best known. It's awful, but it reportedly made audiences hysterical in the burlesque houses.

Riley owned The Madhouse in Hollywood, a tavern never forgotten by anyone who ever saw the inside, designed to be packed with sight gags.
