Production edit

The red jumpsuits singing maids Cherie and Marie are seen wearing in this film are the same jumpsuits Markie Post wore in season one of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. The jumpsuits were re-purposed for the Rosebud Beach Hotel. When Markie was asked if she remembered the suit, she said she remembered it well. She said there were two made for her as it was a long shoot, and while one was being cleaned, she had another to shoot in. Marie Currie said she remembered going to Universal for a fitting for the movie, and production were thrilled to find two of the same suit for them to wear, she didn't know it was made for Buck Rogers.

This is the first film Cherie and Marie Currie acted in together.

A white van in the film has "Irv-Harry's Laundry Service" on its side. The film's producers are Irving Schwartz and Harry Hurwitz.
