Jump to: Cameo (2)
In the slang of the time "Bohunk", a conflation of "Bohemian" and "Hungarian", was a very pejorative term for a person (almost always a male). The title is a play on this word as well as a reference to "Beau Geste." Also, sometimes "Bohunk" was reduced to "hunk"; so to call a man a hunk was not a compliment.

According to producer Hal Roach, this film was to have been only a two-reeler, but the comedy was expanded so well that he financed the movie at twice its proposed length.

The chief of the Riff Raff is the film's director James W. Horne. His credit reads "Abul Kasim K'Horne (In person)". The list of "The Players" also credits "3897 Arabs, 1921 Riffians and four native Swede guides". (Of course, there are nowhere near this number of people in the film.)
