The film's pre-release titles were Katherine the Last and The Awakening of Katrina. According to the film's program, this was Franciska Gaal's third appearance in American films, and her first for M-G-M. Biographical sources on Gaal note that this was her final American film before her return to Hungary in 1940. The program, as well as reviews, noted that this was to be Franchot Tone's final screen appearance before returning to the Broadway stage. He did return to M-G-M in 1939, however, in Fast and Furious (see below).
