Eve Arden has a bit part in the film. In one memorable scene, she plays an actress faking a Southern accent. Twelve years later she and Joan Crawford teamed for the noir classic Mildred Pierce (1945), which won Crawford a Best Actress Oscar and Arden a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination.
Girl with Tod:
I don't like the looks of this place, Tod.
Tod Newton: Ah, come on. You'll get a lot of laughs.
Ted Healy's Three Stooges have small parts in the movie as stage hands. 28 minutes into the film Larry asks Moe, "How are you in the country?" Moe slaps Larry, at which time a large bridge or other dental appliance shoots out of Larry's mouth, bounces off of Curly and falls to the floor. None of the other cast members seem to notice. Kudos to Larry for staying in character and continuing to deliver his lines, thus saving the scene.
