Mitch's plane in the film is a Stearman C3-B, registration NC4099, although for this picture it has been changed to the fictitious NR4099. The plane was owned by Paul Mantz, and can be seen in over 20 other films from the 1930s. Mantz was a stunt pilot and provided aviation services to the motion picture industry in a career spanning over 35 years. See more »
In the part where the speeding train is shown in the near background, there is no smoke whatsoever emitting from the locomotive's smokestack. Yet in the next shot, taken from a different angle, the locomotive is shown emitting a steady plume of dark smoke. See more »
Apart from generally uninteresting performances and a ramshackle plot, it has two unforgivable ingredients: puppies being taken from their mother shortly after their birth and the three central figures in blackface.
It also has a plane and its renegade pilot. It has Scotty Becket dressed as a girl for most of the story. It has Mexico (an unlikely looking Mexico.) It has a car that catches on fire. It has a man and woman handcuffed together.
Henry Travers does turn in an amusing performance. But he can't save it -- even though his character has a dog named Perfume.
