Working titles for this film were Dames and Daughters of Today. A biography of Rita Hayworth claims that Hayworth would have starred in this picture had she not been loaned to M-G-M for Susan and God (see below). The file for the film in the MPAA/PCA Collection at the AMPAS Library indicates that in July 1939 the PCA warned Columbia to remove from the script some censorable material, including the line, "I've been around the world and I don't mean geographically"; scenes containing nudity; "offensive details" of the fight staged by "Betty" and "Frankie"; and "Hazel's" line, "With your figure, he might just ask for your phone number." The PCA file also contains regional censorship reports, which indicate that the shot of a girl's hanging body early in the film was deleted from prints in various countries and territories. Australian censors eliminated from the film the line: "I want two [men]. I'm double jointed."
