The working title of this film Bird of Prey, which also was the name of John Monk Saunder's original story. RKO borrowed Elizabeth Allan from M-G-M for this film. According to a Hollywood Reporter news item, Stuart Erwin was to have appeared in the production. Actor and future producer William Cagney, the brother of James Cagney, made motion picture debut in the film. Arthur "Art" Jarrett was a popular radio singer, and the Stroud Twins (Claude and Clarence) were well-known vaudeville performers. According to modern sources, footage from Howard Hughes's 1930 film Hell's Angels was used in some of the flying sequences. Modern sources include Edward Gargan in the cast.
