The role played by Robert Cummings was listed in some reviews as "Dick," although the character is called "Brad Carson" in the film. Gordon MacRae, who had teamed with Doris Day on several previous Warner Bros. productions, was originally cast in that role, according to a March 1953 Los Angeles Examiner news item. A February 1953 Hollywood Reporter news item announced that William Jacobs would produce the film, pending his recovery from illness; however, Jacobs died on September 30, 1953. Although their appearance in the film has not been confirmed, Hollywood Reporter news items add Havis Davenport, Paul Haakon, Larri Thomas, Lucy McAleer and Molly McCart to the cast. Although a November 1953 Hollywood Reporter news item announced that the film would be presented in 3-D, the film was shot in wide-screen only. The filming of the pie-throwing scene, for which twenty-four pies were baked, was described in a January 1954 Los Angeles Daily News article. Exteriors were filmed on location in Miami, according to December 1953 Hollywood Reporter news items. Lucky Me marked the feature-film debut of actress Angie Dickinson.
