According to materials contained in the file on the film in the MPAA/PCA Collection at the AMPAS Library, in January 1938, independent producer Walter Wanger corresponded with Joseph I. Breen about producing a film based on the Victoria Lincoln novel to star Joan Bennett. Although the Lincoln novel built its story around the mother, both the play and RKO film focused on the daughter. The picture was banned in Detroit and engendered protest because of its prostitute character. To satisfy the Hays Office, the mother was made to suffer an unhappy death. Marjorie Rambeau was nominated for an Academy Award in the Actress, Supporting Player category.
