Writer Joe Laurie, Jr. started in vaudeville during the 1920s. Later he was a principal writer for the Eddie Cantor and Al Jolson radio shows and starred on the radio program Can You Top This?" He also worked as a staff columnist for Variety for twenty years. A contemporary source indicates that Jack Carson's guitar solo was dubbed by Tony Romano and his piano solo was dubbed by Dave Klatzkin. Although two contemporary sources list the film's running time as 78 minutes, material included in the copyright files gives the running time as 94 minutes, as do the Motion Picture Herald and Variety reviews. Jack Carson and Robert Alda reprised their roles in a February 23, 1949 Lux Radio Theatre broadcast, co-starring Dorothy Lamour.
