The working title of this film was Success Story. In John Howard Lawson's stage play, the Joe Martin character was portrayed as a Jewish American who resented working in a gentile's business, but this ethnic conflict was not used in the film. In September 1933, Film Daily announced that Lawson's play had been bought by RKO as a starring vehicle for William Gargan and Wynne Gibson. A Hollywood Reporter production chart adds June Brewster and Howard Wilson to the cast, but their participation in the final film has not been confirmed.
