Indexer Notes

Although the title on the splash panel is "Elliott Lawrence," Lawrence refers to the story in the caption as "Angie's Antics."

Elliott Lawrence was a real-life bandleader who plays himself in the story. However, it cannot be confirmed that his vocalist "Gwynne Ames" was also a real person.

Larry Lawton is called "Harry" in the splash panel.
