This film's earliest documented telecast took place in Los Angeles Saturday 25 May 1957 on KCOP (Channel 13); since most of the vintage MGM film library was, at that time, in the hands of KTTV (Channel 11), this title was apparently one of their rejects. Aged and obscure, sponsor interest was borderline non-existent, and it was only rarely dusted off in the less predominant markets. It first aired in Norfolk VA 10 June 1958 on WTAR (Channel 3), in Windsor ON (serving Detroit) 22 November 1958 on CKLW (Channel 9), in Akron 16 September 1959 on WAKR (Channel 49), in Tucson 8 December 1959 on KVOA (Channel 4), in Phoenix 4 May 1961 on KPHO (Channel 5), and in Cleveland 19 December 1962 on KYW (Channel 3). Today it's lodged in the Turner Classic Movies film library and occasionally taken out for an airing on cable TV on Turner Classic Movies.
Lawrence and Muriel get married spur-of-the-moment on the same day Adolf gets a loan to help Lawrence set up a doctor's office. The date shown on the loan document turns out to be a Saturday. While it's possible Adolf's friend at the Building & Loan Association would do business with him on a Saturday, government offices would not be open to obtain a marriage certificate, much less conduct a ceremony.
MGM also issued this movie as a silent film.
