Edith Fitzgerald's and Robert Riskin's play was copyrighted July 1, 1930. This was Bette Davis' first starring role. A news item in Hollywood Reporter notes that Howard Bretherton and William Keighley were considered as directors for the film before Robert Florey was assigned. Shooting lasted for eighteen days and the total cost of the film was $115,000. This is a remake of the 1931 Warner Bros. film Illicit (see below).
