Trivia
Copyrighted October 6, 1930.
Also filmed in Spanish as Una Cana al Aire, which was released in Los Angeles on November 21, 1930, and in Barcelona, Spain, on March 26, 1932. Also filmed in French as Gare las Bomb!, which was released in 1930. The foreign production number was C-34-S-F, and both versions were five reels in length, with the Spanish version lasting 43 minutes. Both foreign-language versions were filmed August 21 to September 3, 1930.
During the scene at the nightclub, Thelma Todd isn't wearing a bra, and Dorothy Granger isn't embarrassed about revealing quite a bit of cleavage. It's the scene I refer to as a "pervert's paradise"!
