Joe Penner received star billing for the first time in Go Chase Yourself, and Lucille Ball enjoyed her first leading role in the film. According to modern sources, Penner pushed RKO to cast Ball after he heard her on The Phil Baker Show, a popular radio program on which Ball had just become a regular featured performer. The contributing writers listed above were taken from a February 1938 credit sheet from Screen Achievements Bulletin but were not included on March 1938 credit sheet, suggesting that they each contributed less than 10 percent to the final script. Motion Picture Herald's "In the Cutting Room" and Hollywood Reporter news items add Vicki Lester, Otto Fries and William Franey as cast members, but their participation in the final film has not been confirmed. "I'm from the City," the title of the film's song, was also the title of Penner's next movie. Modern sources add the following cast members: Jack Green (Officer), Philip Morris (Policeman), John Ince (John Weatherby), Lynton Brent (Photographer), Clayton Moore, Alan Bruce and William Corson (Reporters), Napoleon Whiting (Porter), Donald Kerr (Gas station attendant), Bobs Watson (Junior), Diana Gibson and Rita Oehmen (Diners), Billy Dooley (Linesman), Edward Hearn (Raffle seller) and Chester Clute (Excited man).
