Kay Francis had a slight lisp... she had trouble with the letter "r". This was the first movie where it really jumped out at me, though. It's one of those things where once you notice it, you can't stop noticing it. Her roommate's name was Marian, or as Kay says it, "Mawian".
There is generally a lot of smoking in MCMXXXVIII movies. Here is a scene where Kay Francis does a little majorette twirl with her cigarette.
Familiar faces: Penny Singleton as George Brent's secretary, Arthur Housman as a (surprise!) comical drunk, Clayton Moore as a theater usher.
