Did the state room keep getting bigger?


Seems to me there is no way they could have fit all those people in the room we were shown at the beginning.

One of the commenters (a comedy writer, comedian, film historian, or etc.) appearing in the special features section of the ANATO DVD said that the walls of that stateroom set may have been widened after that first image to handle all the people who would pour into that room.

After the waiters had finally entered, it sure looked to me that the room was bigger than when first filmed. If stateroom was enlarged (including height!), that was done expertly to scale by the filmmaking geniuses at MGM.


Stupid!?! I never called you stupid! To call you stupid would be an insult to stupid people!

Indeed! Thanks for the info.

It definitely got bigger. The first time the room was shown, the big case took up almost the entire room and it looked like even just Groucho might not fit in there, let alone 10 other people.
