The working title of this film was Going, Going, Gone (also spelled Going! Going! Gone!). Robert Woolsey, who was part of RKO's popular comedy team "Wheeler and Woolsey," made his debut as a solo screen star in this production. According to an April 1931 Film Daily production news item, "an important event in sound recording was achieved when the...'Going! Going! Gone!' company succeeded in recording the rustling of leaves, bird calls and natural wind effects during a location trip to Sherwood Forest, 35 miles from Hollywood." The recording was accomplished by the "silencer and ground noise eliminator" invented by RKO sound man Hugh McDowell, Jr. A Film Daily news item adds William Halligan, James Quinn, George Chandler, Charles Gillette, Ford West, Edward Peil and Leo Willis to the cast, but their participation in the final film has not been confirmed.
