About this movie


The original running time was over three hours but after it's first theatrical run it was edited down to 162 minutes then to 154.  TCM shows a restored 186 minute version.

Zasu Pitts died a few days after production ended.

During casting director Stanley Kramer called up every comedian he could think of.  Stan Laurel, Bob Hope, Jackie Mason, Judy Holiday, George Burns and Red Skelton turned down parts in the film.
