The screenplay for this film was adapted from William Joyce Cowan's unpublished story, "The Seeing Eye." Richard Dix returned to RKO to act in this movie after a two-year absence from the studio. Although Hollywood Reporter announced that Blind Alibi was to be the first of four RKO pictures starring Dix and produced by Cliff Reid, Reid only produced one of the four. According to Motion Picture Herald's "In the Cutting Room," Lightning, not Ace, the Wonder Dog, was to appear in the film. The Motion Picture Herald review erroneously lists Lightning in the cast. Motion Picture Herald's "In the Cutting Room" and Hollywood Reporter news items add George Davis, Gladden James, William Gould, Lew Carter, Clyde Wilson, Pat O'Malley, Monte Montague, Robert Homans, Lew Phelps and Richard Parker to the cast, but their participation in the final film has not been confirmed.
