Facts
Filmed October 11 to 27, 1927.  15 shooting dates went into the making of this film.  Anthony Mack was still directing "Dog Heaven" (no. 70) when the 'start' date arrived for "Spook-Spoofing" on Oct. 11th, directed by Robert F. McGowan. Time was divided between the two films until Oct. 13th, when "Dog Heaven" finished. After this, McGowan continued with "Spook-Spoofing" until the 'finish' date of Oct. 27th. No shooting took place on Oct. 16th or 23rd, which were both Sundays. Nearly a week after the finish date, retakes were shot for "Dog Heaven" before shooting began for "Rainy Days" (no. 72).
