While Bert Lahr did star in The Wizard of Oz (1939) as the Cowardly Lion just three years before this movie was produced (and much of Bert's same shtick and style from Oz appeared in this movie as well - the warbling voice, the oblique reference to his 'cowardly act', and other similarities), Buddy Ebsen was also supposed to star in 'Oz' as the Tin Man but infamously had to be replaced because of an allergic reaction to the silvered paint. This might have also been Buddy's last true hoofing flick before he turned straight actor.

Two cast members in studio records/casting call lists did not appear or were not identifiable in the movie. These were (with their character names): 'Linda Rivas' (Cigarette girl) and Warren Jackson (Song publisher).
