The working titles of this film were Ambassador to Brazil and His Excellency from Brazil. A September 1949 Hollywood Reporter news item lists dancer and actress Nita Bieber in the cast, but her appearance in the final film has not been confirmed. According to a late January 1950 Daily Variety news item, a routine called "Mention My Name in Sheboygan," with Jane Powell and Scotty Beckett, was cut from the film before its release. The 1940 Universal film It's a Date, produced by Joe Pasternak, directed by William A. Seiter and starring Deanna Durbin and Kay Francis, was also based on Jane Hall, Frederick Kohner and Ralph Block's screen story (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films; 1931-40, F3.2185).
