Movie Quote(s):
  • Dr. Lorenz: And if you ever need anything, like medical attention, or fire insurance, or a marriage performed, or a loan, perhaps? I should be delighted to oblige. Winnie Slade: Doesn't anybody else do anything in Jinxville? Dr. Lorenz: Oh, they... they vote once a year.
  • Dr. Lorenz: Do you imagine I could take advantage, exploit, capitalize on a great scientific discovery? Cheat millions of people all the world over? Profane my profession? Suppose I make a few dollars, don't you think I wouldn't put it right back into science?
  • Dr. Lorenz: If he is a choreographer, then I am Pavlova.
  • Dr. Lorenz: It isn't in Brampton's room. That proves he did it! He's covering up!
  • Silvio, the Human Bomb: In this sack, I have forty kilos of dynamite, and I don't mean ravioli!
Movie Trivia:
  • This is the second of four film teamings of Boris Karloff and Peter Lorre, all of them comedies. Others were You'll Find Out (1940), The Raven (1963) and The Comedy of Terrors (1963).
  • The plot of this film has strong similarities to Arsenic and Old Lace (1944), in which both Boris Karloff and Peter Lorre were previously associated - Karloff appeared in the theatrical original (and at least three television adaptations) while Lorre co-starred in the film version.
