According to a Hollywood Reporter news item, RKO changed the title of this film from Fanny Foley Herself to Mom and back to Fanny Foley Herself within a ten-day period. Edna May Oliver, who previously had appeared in a supporting role in RKO's Cimarron, made her debut as a star in this production. New York Times makes the following statement about the color in the picture: "There are greenish skies, steel-tinted nights, amber lights, frocks and gowns of pastel shades, most of this prismatic work being quite well done. But whether it is, on the whole, more effective than black and white is a matter of opinion."
