The opening Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer logo has an "OUT TO LUNCH" sign in front of the circle hiding the lion's head as he roars. The sign then flips up to reveal an animated man trapped inside the lion.

This is a film you can't go wrong with. MGM compiled a salute to the comedy that MGM brought to the big screen over a 40 year period. You'll see its biggest

The comedians share equally with MGM stars of drama in some of their comedies. Case in point Clark Gable in Too Hot To Handle and Spencer
