Ollie's blackmailer: I don't care if you burn up!

The version of this film available on DVD is a mediocre Film Classics reissue print in which the original MGM credits have been replaced and the title of the film is absent. The computer-colorized version features the original credits minus the MGM lion. The Spanish language version, "Politiquerías", features the full MGM credits and the lion as well.
