I love you... and Jim.
Ted Hanover: Well, I love Jim too... but let's not get too chummy.
When Jim enters Ted's Hollywood dressing room, he has his pipe on the left side of this mouth. The next shot shows it on the right side, although he has had neither time enough, or his hands free to move it.

The musical number "Abraham", performed by Bing Crosby, Marjorie Reynolds and the chorus, is sometimes cut from TV prints due to the use of blackface. Always included in telecasts of the film from the late 1950's through the early 1980's, it has been cut from Disney Channel telecasts of the film as well as showings on American Movie Classics after they began adding commercials to their films and editing potentially offensive sequences out. When AMC first started, it showed the film complete.
