Facts
•Filmed probably in late December 1924 and early January 1925.
•The 1924 and 1925 studio datebooks don't mention production A-38, which was "Ask Grandma."  However, it seems likely that the film began as part of "The Love Bug" (no. 37), since the two have many similarities. Or perhaps the person writing the production numbers into the datebooks made an error.
•There were 36 copies of this film printed for its initial release.
•Production A-38.
•Copyrighted April 2, 1925, by Pathé Exchange, Inc. Registration no. LU21304. Since the copyright was not renewed, this film is now in the public domain.
•It was the 39th film in the series to be released.
•A 33-second excerpt from this film was included as part of The Boy Friends comedy Too Many Women.  This footage does not show up in the available prints of "Ask Grandma."
Did you notice?
•Mickey reads The Book Of The Dance by Arnold Genthe.  He and Grandma read Wild West Weekly.
