appeared in the film as part of a settlement with Universal following their non appearance in The Boys from Syracuse (1940).[3] The movie was meant to start production in May 1940, but the casting of the brothers meant the script had to be rewritten and shooting pushed back until 10 June.[4] The songs 'Hit the Road' and 'Rhumboogie' were written by Hughie Prince.
