Trivia

Before the number "The Bayamo" begins, a man named Jack tells everyone to take it from the top. After the number, Ricky addresses Jack saying, "How was that for you, Jack?" Most likely the actor playing "Jack" is Jack Baker, the person who was the dance choreographer. He isn't listed in the acting credits, but only as the choreographer, even though he has dialogue in the scene. See more »

Roosevelt Raceway
12 July 2018 | by sscolumbiaSee all my reviews

Being a bit of a horse fan, I noticed in this episode that the harness racing taking place here was at the old Roosevelt Raceway in Westbury, Long Island, New York (abt. 15 min. drive east of Belmont Park). In the pic I posted you can see the double reversed RR in the infield grass. It closed up in 1988. I and my wife used to go there as kids.
