Warner Bros. Studios began to tire of the boys' antics during production of "Angels Wash Their Faces." Among their pranks: throwing a lit firecracker in Humphrey Bogart's dressing room, painting obscene murals on the office walls, and setting off fire sprinklers in the wardrobe department. The studio hired a former football player, Russ Saunders, in hopes of taming their unruly sextet. He ultimately had to use a fire hose on them. Ultimately the studio became fed up and dropped their contract.
Despite its title and the cast holdovers, this was not a sequel to "Angels with Dirty Faces."
When Billy mentions that even the President has a woman in his Cabinet before appointing Peggy to head the street sweeping department, he is referring to Frances Perkins (1880-1965) who was Secretary of Labor during President Franklin Roosevelt's entire presidency from 1933 to 1945 and was the first woman appointed to a Cabinet position. There would not be another woman in the Cabinet until 1975.
