The film has no relation to the W. C. Fields movie from seven years earlier also entitled Million Dollar Legs.



Betty Grable and Jackie Coogan were married at the time and had appeared together the previous year playing supporting roles in the musical comedy College Swing starring George Burns, Gracie Allen, Martha Raye and Bob Hope. Coincidentally, it wasn't long after this film that the movie studio Twentieth Century-Fox would insure Grable's legs in real life for 1 million dollars.[1]
