Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Cary Grant considered his acting in this film to be horribly over the top and often called it his least favorite of all his movies.
  • Movie Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): When Jonathan is trying to find Mr. Spenalzo, he mentions to Elaine that his friend Dr. Einstein is "somewhat of a magician." However when he says this, his lips aren't moving.
  • Director Frank Capra enlisted in the U. S. Army Signal Corps in 1941 during filming. He received an extension of his order to report for active duty until late January 1942 so he could finish editing the picture.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Rooney arrives at the Brewster home late in the movie, the other cops all address him as "Lieutenant". However, a few minutes later. Mortimer addresses him as "Captain" and even introduces him to Mr. Witherspoon as "Captain Rooney".
