  • Trivia

    • Goof: Albert Miris is seen going into a theatre on September 8, 1931, with a poster reading "Escapades of 1933."

    • There is a scene where at the theater, a sign reads: "Dish Night." During the Depression, on designated nights (usually a slow night like Tuesday or Wednesday, never on a Friday when they start showing the new weekly movies) the ushers would give a china dish to all adult ticket holders, with a different dish being given each week. It turned out to be a clever way to get people to go to the movies, and for the people to stock their cupboard with a set of new dishes.

    • Goof: The projectionist is heard saying "...talkies are just a fad." The first all talking film, Lights of New York, had been released in 1928, so by 1931, talking films were well established and the thought of returning to silent movies would not be a valid statement for that date.
