Hal Roach is quoted as saying that "'Si, Senor' … fairly thrills with the spirit of chili-con-carne and is full of tomale intensity."  Please excuse the racism.

I like Bebe's expression as she times a hard-boiled egg.

Harold Lloyd played a millionaire in "Back to the Woods."  He did that in several movies.
