The working title of this film was Sheep's Clothing. Louis Wolheim, who died in February 1931, before the film's opening, made his directorial debut in this production. RKO borrowed Wolheim from the Caddo Company. A Film Daily news item noted that scenes for the film were shot at the Santa Catalina Island harbor, and RKO rented six high-speed boats at $500 per hour to patrol the harbor and prevent excessive noise during shooting, according to a Film Daily news item.
