Production

Phil Karlson had just made a film for Eagle Lion, The Big Cat when asked to direct Down Memory Lane. He said someone from Eagle Lion had the idea to make a film in two days using all of Mack Sennett's old material including Bing Crosby and W.C. Fields. Karlson was a fan of Steve Allen on the radio and got him to play the lead role. [4]
