- Louis Mayer, head of MGM originally was against the idea of Myrna Loy being cast in this picture but director W.S. Van Dyke wanted to use the stars of the movie Manhattan Melodrama (1934)_ , William Powell and Myrna Loy. Mayer said that William Powell was OK for the part since he had already played detectives in other films. Myrna eventually got the part and made new image for herself.
- Film was shot only in about two weeks. Was originally said to be a "B" picture. First of six in The Thin Man series.
