Jerry Maren, who plays the pitcher in the kitchen baseball scene, was actually an actor in The Wizard of Oz (1939), in which he played (uncredited) a Lollipop Guild Member Munchkin. Maren later said he regretted making this film, because it was in such poor taste, and nothing remotely like what happened while filming "The Wizard of Oz".
