Acknowledgements:
-J. Darsie Lloyd is listed for this short in the HLE, but Gaylord Lloyd is not (he is listed on the IMDb).
-Harold Moore (possibly the same as co-dir./cinematographer Hal Mohr) and editor Della Mullady are also listed in the HLE cast.
-The IMDb lists "Henrietta Thompson" in the cast list. This is actually Molly Thompson.
