Trivia

Rocky tells Lucy that an undercover hat check girl who was found out was tied to the propeller of an ocean liner "like one of those wristwatch commercials." This is a reference to the Timex TV commercials in which a waterproof watch was strapped to a boat propeller, submerged in a water tank, proving that it "takes a licking and keeps on ticking."
