The film's pre-release titles were Lady from New Orleans and Lost Lady. According to news items in Film Daily, Lillian Bond, David Manners, Boris Karloff, John Harrington, Montague Love and Richard Bennett were originally announced in the cast, and Michael Curtiz was originally assigned to direct. Barbara Stanwyck was also considered for the lead. The song "When It's Sleepy Time Down South" is sung by Nina Mae McKinney. Some modern sources have stated that at a time when the portrayal of African Americans in films was stereotyped, Nina Mae McKinney and Clarence Muse played the only two reputable people in the film. The film was advertised as being "Not for Children."
