He's My Brother

Trivia: In the scene where Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye are escaping the club where the sisters are performing, you see Bing Crosby hail a cab. Not withstanding that there happens to be a cab in the alley, but moreover, when Bing "whistles" you can here that he wasn't able to do it. It comes out as a "flub" sound. Not really a mistake, but kinda funny.

Question: At the Vermont lodge Judy is dancing with the same male dancer that Betty dances with at the same time in New York City at a nightclub. How can that happen?

Chosen answer: The actors appear similar but they are different people. John Brascia danced with Vera Ellen in Vermont. George Chakiris danced with Rosemary Clooney in New York.

Question: Why does Wallace change his tune suddenly when offering the Haynes sisters a drink on the train, considering that a few seconds before he was not too pleased because Davis had given their tickets to the sisters?

Chosen answer: While initially not pleased their tickets had been given away, Wallace used his war injured arm to gain passage (a running gag in the movie) and once on the train it no longer mattered that they did not have tickets. Besides, they were very pretty girls that they already knew and liked.

Question: When they got ready to leave the train, Rosemary Clooney was helped down from an upper berth in a hallway. What happened to the private room that the sisters started out in?

Chosen answer: The "up all night" refers to the original plan for Bing and Danny to exit the train in New York. When the plan was changed to continue on to Vermont then probably some people got off in New York (or elsewhere) and opened up a hallway berth. The sisters took that and Bing and Danny got a room as well.
