The working title for this film was Ballerina. The picture marked the screen debut of Danny Thomas, and was the first film in which Karin Booth, born Katharine Hoffman and formerly known as Katharine Booth, was billed under her new name. Although a May 1946 Hollywood Reporter news item noted that dancer Katherine Sergava was tested for a role, she did not appear in the released film. Another film based on Paul Morand's novel was the 1937 French film La mort du cygne, directed by Jean Benoit-Lvy and starring Yvette Chauvir and Mia Slavenska. The 1937 film was released in the United States under the title Ballerina.
