Last theatrical release that Bob Hope ever starred in.
Bing Crosby's cameo marked his final acting appearance in a film (his remaining appearances would be in documentaries).
Cancel My Reservation was not a success at the box office and was panned by critics. Hope and his wife Dolores attended the film's premiere at Radio City Music Hall in New York City (incidentally during a strike by the Musicians' Union, which prevented the band or the Rockettes from performing) and he reputedly bemoaned that he was getting too old to play a leading man and therefore would not make another feature film, although he would make cameo appearances in later films.
This was the final movie of Bob Hope with Bing Crosby, released ten years after "The Road to Hong Kong" (1962).
The film's working title was "The Broken Gun".
