Trivia
Copyrighted May 22, 1933.
Released as part of the 'All Stars' series. This was the tenth and final entry in the Taxi Boys series to be released, though was the first film in the series to be produced. It was originally scheduled to be released as the second entry in the series, but then shelved and finally released on June 24, 1933 - a full year after shooting began. This explains the continuity of Bud Jamison and Clyde Cook reprising their roles from What Price Taxi, which was the first film in the series to be released.
The opening shot of the film is on Washington Boulevard with the Culver Hotel on the left of the screen, looming in the distance.
