Facts
•Filmed September 23 - October 1, 1933.
Did you notice?
•When Jack Barty talks about "hauling yer ashes", that phrase was a common euphemism in the early 20th century for having sex.  That, and the joke Baldwin Cooke makes when Charley asks how an interior decorator dresses - "You don't wear a dress, you just come as close to it as possible" - are things I like to point out when anyone mentions how family-oriented Hal Roach comedies were.
