When Lucky Lawton hides inside a food cart with his head emerging on a platter to appear as a singing ("I ain't got no body!"), decapitated spirit to frighten Manya, he loses control of the cart and it crashes down stairs. The shot when the cart collides with a suit of armor runs a moment too long, revealing an obvious wax dummy head on top of the cart instead of a living person. See more »
The alcohol bit was so dumb, it really impacted on the film overall.
When the film begins, rich American, Lucky Lawton (Bing Crosby) is about to marry Barbara when the unexpected occurs...they discover she is STILL married and she needs to return to Paris to get her divorce. The plan is for Lucky to soon follow and meet her there for the wedding. However, when he goes through a small town on his way to Paris, he discovers a comely local lady (Franciska Gaal) and falls for her as well! How do alcohol and attempted vehicular homicide have to do with sorting all this out??
The film is fair and pretty predictable but could have still worked...mostly because Crosby was always such a great screen personality. But the alcohol gimmick and how it played out was really, really stupid...as was the finale. Frankly, I expected more.
