The working titles of this film were Children of the Streets, Ladies for Hire, A Lady for Hire and Forgotten Women. Motion Picture Herald reviewed the picture under both Lady for Hire and Forgotten Women. A Film Daily release chart claims that the screenplay was taken from Robert Milton and Guy Bolton's "A Lady for Hire," but it is not clear whether this title refers to a screen story or a literary work. All other sources refer to the story as a screen "original." An October 1930 Film Daily news item announced that Jane Murfin was adapting the story, but her contribution to the final film has not been determined. A Film Daily pre-production news item announced H. B. Warner as Compson's co-star, but that actor did not appear in the final film.
