The onscreen credits for the source are "Collier's magazine stories" by Richard English
, but the Screen Achievements Bulletin credits only "Strictly Ding Dong" in the Collier's issue of 25 June 1938. Perhaps "Ding Dong Gives" in Collier's issue of 28 October 1939, and other Richard English stories were also sources. See more
