The final gag has Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy accidentally driving their Model T through an industrial band saw; the blade passes between them and cuts their vehicle in half. Laurel & Hardy biographer Charles Barr claimed the comedians were nearly killed filming this scene, but Roach Studios special-effects director Roy Seawright asserted that Stan and Ollie were never in danger. "That gag was a collaboration between Fred Knoth's mechanical department and my photographic department," Seawright said. "It was done with a traveling matte, a traveling split-screen. We had one half go through first, and then we introduced the other half. So, ultimately, it was accomplished on an optical printer."

The shots of Oliver Hardy emerging from the sawdust flue were filmed outside the large ivy-covered building that housed Stages 1 and 2 of the Hal Roach studio. This exterior can be seen in the background of several Roach films, including the "Our Gang" short Washee Ironee (1934). It is recognizable by its distinctive square bricks.

One of four Laurel & Hardy shorts directed by Lloyd French, and acknowledged as one of the team's best. French was a journeyman director who had done earlier uncredited work with L&H Pack Up Your Troubles (1932), and went on to create musical and comedy shorts for Warner Bros. and RKO through the early 1940s.

The gag in which the Boys in-car entertainment is a record player under the bonnet operated by a pull cord was copied in the animated Wallace and Gromit A Matter of Loaf and Death (2008).

This film has been preserved and restored by the UCLA Film and Television Archive.
