According to news items in Hollywood Reporter, George Nicholls Jr. was originally slated to direct this picture in July 1939. In November 1939, Garson Kanin was assigned to direct, but when he turned down the assignment, the picture was shelved until March 1940. Actress Anne Shirley was known as Dawn O'Day until she changed her name to Anne Shirley in 1934 after she was assigned the title role of Anne of Green Gables of which this picture is a sequel.
