Sources conflict over the producer of this film. Although the onscreen credits do not contain a producer credit, Variety lists Mark Hellinger as producer and Bryan Foy as associate producer, while Daily Variety and Screen Achievements Bulletin list Hellinger as associate producer and Foy as producer. According to the Variety review, this was the last gangster angle picture for the Dead End Kids because of complaints registered by the PTA. A news item in Hollywood Reporter adds that the film had a benefit performance for the Grant Street Boys, an East Side group for impoverished boys. Part of the proceeds went to finance a summer camp for poor children.
