Motion Picture Herald lists Percy Hilburn as the film's photographer, but this credit is probably an error. According to a Film Daily news item, in order to create a realistic live radio broadcast, studio technicians worked out an electric "brush discharge" that produced a "glow about a transmitting tube" instead of the usual "sputtering sparks" effect. A musical version of Bella and Samuel Spewacks' story, called Leave It to Me, opened on Broadway November 9, 1938. Cole Porter wrote the music and William Gaxton, Victor Moore, Sophie Tucker and Mary Martin played the leads.
