  • Trivia

    • After all the stunts Shorty pulled to get out of marrying Elverna, you'd think she wouldn't want to marry Shorty anymore since it is obvious he no longer wants her.

    • Gloria mistakes a donkey for a cow, mostly because she is a "city woman." However, people in the city are familiar with farm animals. Did they do this to make it seem like Gloria really needed an adjustment?
