Onscreen director and cast credits appear on individual playing cards. Film Daily notes that Alfred E. Green was originally announced as the director. Although screen credits list the name as "Philip," Frank McHugh's character is called "Speed" throughout the film. Contemporary sources note that the playoff between Peter and Van Dorn is a spoof of a match played between bridge experts Cuthbertson and Sidney S. Lenz. According to Warner Bros. production reports included in the file on the film in the AMPAS library, the film was shot over twenty-two days for a total cost of $164,000.
