Trivia: All of the scenes in this movie were shot in only one take and in one scene the technique really shows. When Jimmy Stewart is drunk, he ad-libbed hiccuping while he was talking. Cary Grant, not expecting the comic relief, had to look down at the floor to keep from laughing (you can see him grinning and collecting himself).
