Main Characters in this Episode
- Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Though the mirror routine seems perfect, Lucy does make one error: she honks the horn with the wrong hand.
- Though it looks like one continuous shot, it is actually several shots spliced together, because Harpo kept changing the routine.
- Harpo was advised by his doctors not to do the show, because he was coming off heart surgery.
- After filming, Harpo stayed around to play the harp, while Vivian Vance sang.
- Lucille Ball and Harpo Marx had previously appeared in the Marx Brothers film Room Service for RKO. By this time, what was formerly RKO Studios was now owned by Lucy and Desi Arnaz and renamed Desilu Studios.
