TRIVIA & BEHIND THE SCENES: Directed by Vince McEveety. Dean Jones returns for his seventh movie with Disney. Screenplay by by Roswell Rogers, based an original story by Ted Key. Title sequences featured animation by Disney animator Ward Kimball. Filmed at the Walt Disney studios lot. The studio announced auditions at the time for the key roles as... the duck. People from all around brought their ducks, and Disney chose 3 of them to play the part. They were treated like royalty while there, and had recreational swims in the pond at one of the outdoor berms.
