Grace Goodall (Mrs. Richmond) had a near-fatal choking accident during rehearsal of a food fight scene, which never completed filming for this reason.
Moe Howard later stated that the plot was so good that it bore repeating. The Three Stooges reworked the film twice more, as Half-Wits Holiday (1947) (Curly Howard's final starring role) and Pies and Guys (1958).
In The Three Stooges 75th Anniversary Special (2003), hosted by Woody Harrelson, the dancing scene with Geneva Mitchell was voted by the fans as their favorite Stooge moment of all time. The dancing sequence would later be reused in In the Sweet Pie and Pie (1941).
During the dance sequence, Larry Fine loses his shoe. At one point Phyllis Crane, dancing with Moe Howard, trips on the shoe and falls down, visibly striking her head on the floor; this was not scripted.
Loosely based on George Bernard Shaw's 1913 play :Pygmalion" (also known as "My Fair Lady"), which in 1935 had not had an official film adaptation. The play has been frequently filmed, beginning with Pygmalion (1938) just a few years later.
The rubbish truck scene was filmed on location on Larchmont Street south of Hollywood. The Larchmont Theatre, then showing Mississippi (1935), is visible in this scene. Also the (then) HOLLYWOODLAND sign can briefly be glimpsed in the upper right corner of the screen.
There are still photos from scenes which were cut. One shows Moe Howard, Curly Howard and Larry Fine parking their garbage truck to attend the fancy dress ball. Another, which was used as the VHS box cover, shows Larry Fine and Curly Howard cutting a stuck trashcan off of Moe Howard's head.
The idea for the film came from Moe Howard's wife, Helen, who was offered either screen credit or money (she took the latter).
A colorized version of this film was released in 2006. It was not released on a Stooge DVD, but rather as a hastily added DVD bonus feature for Breakin' All the Rules (2004).
This is the first of three shorts in which Curly Howard gets a sofa spring attached to his back. The spring gag would be used again in Three Little Sew and Sews (1939), An Ache in Every Stake (1941), with Shemp Howard in Hugs and Mugs (1950) and Joe DeRita in Have Rocket - Will Travel (1959) .
