    • TRIVIA (2)

      • The opening of the show is one long mobile camera shot. A limo pulls up in front of the Riviera Hotel and out of it pours the cast of the show, walking towards the camera and into the hotel. Next, a donkey cart pulls up carrying Steve. He gets out as the theme plays and Rayburn does the program's opening in Spanish. The camera continues to travel with Steve all the way through the lobby, shaking hands, to the front desk where he learns he has no reservation.

      • Jayne Meadows, Steve's wife, is seen on camera as he's traveling though the casino. He mentions the pretty women in Cuba, kisses her, and says she looks familiar.
