The film was part of a lawsuit by Harold Lloyd against Universal Pictures. He claims they copied sequences from his films, The Freshman, Movie Crazy and Welcome Danger in their films Her Lucky Night, So's Your Uncle and Lucky Man. The court awarded Lloyd $60,000 for Movie Crazy being infringed by So's Your Uncle; he settled with Universal for more than $100,000 for the other two films.
