Corrected entry: In the bed-switching scene, Groucho Marx refers to the police officer (Henderson) as "Colonel," but later, Gottlieb calls the police and asks for "Sergeant Henderson."

Correction: Well you know Groucho; he refers people all sorts of weird titles. He was obviously mocking Henderson.


Corrected entry: When the ship is about to leave for New York, Gottlieb comments that Riccardo, who is on the deck, "has no reputation," so can't sing in America. Later, when Gottlieb desperately needs him, Riccardo shoots back "But I have no reputation, Mr. Gottlieb." He couldn't have overheard the comment, so how can he know to antagonize him with this line?

Correction: Gottlieb makes his comment to Ricardo's girlfriend. She had probably told Ricardo about it by the time Gottlieb pleads for him to sing.


Continuity mistake: In the scene where Harpo is climbing out of the brig and goes to the open window of the famous aviators, he is shown climbing in the room from the outside with the rope he's climbing on draped across his chest. When he gets into the room the rope has disappeared!

Otis B. Driftwood: Signor Lassparri comes from a very famous family. His mother was a well-known bass singer. His father was the first man to stuff spaghetti with bicarbonate of soda, thus causing and curing indigestion at the same time.
