Did You Know?
During the scene in which Lou Costello
is "interrogating" the radio show cast, he blurts out the question, "Where were you on the night of January 16th?" This is reference to the famous Broadway play of the same name by Ayn Rand
, the Russian-born novelist and philosopher who wrote "The Fountainhead" and "Atlas Shrugged." The Night of January 16th
(1941) was also made into a movie. See more
Costello running in fright in the radio station crashes through a glass partition, leaving a hole in his shape in the glass. Abbott, following, breaks away part of the glass to get through. Later, we see the hole in the partition in its original form. See more
