According to news items in Hollywood Reporter and Los Angeles Times, producers Gene Towne and Graham Baker originally wanted Edward G. Robinson for the role of "Burdle" and Jean Hersholt for the role of "the Professor." Elsie, who plays "Buttercup," was the Borden Milk cow. The film was criticized by the New Yorker as subverting the Louisa May Alcott novel by adding an underworld plot. Modern sources note that Towne and Baker had an uncredited hand in the screenplay. In 1934, Mascot filmed a version of the Alcott novel. For more information on other versions of Alcott's works, for Little Women.
