Made more than three years before its release, Crashing Through Danger predates the bigger if not better Slim with Henry Fonda and Manpower
with Edward G. Robinson and Marlene Dietrich, which also portray men
who work with live wires until a girl comes between them. In a scene
that will catch the attention of movie trivia buffs, Ann (Sally Blane)
makes a joking reference to Clark Gable -- Blane perhaps unaware that in
real life, her sister Loretta Young was at that moment illegitimately
pregnant with Gable's child!
