  • Contains the famous "Who's on First" routine.
  • The only baseball defensive position NOT mentioned in the "Who's On First" routine: Right Field.
  • Listen closely during the "Who's On First" routine. The laughter that can be heard faintly belongs to the film crew and director. After numerous takes trying to eliminate it, the power of Abbott and Costello to elicit laughter during this sequence proved too strong. The director had no choice but to leave the giggling in.
  • Lou Costello recycles the "Lifesavers Candy" routine Groucho Marx used in the Marx Brothers' hit Horse Feathers (1932).
  • The boat used as the showboat "River Queen" in this production was also used as the "Cotton Palace" in Show Boat (1936)
