The working title of this film was Miss Madden Is Willing. The film opens with a sequence in which an audience is seen waiting in line outside a theater. The opening credits are then printed on the theater marquee and playbill. As the audience is waiting, Marlene Dietrich comes out of the theater, climbs into a taxi and tells the driver her destination. This was an early example of screen credits running simultaneous to the beginning action of the story. According to a mid-September 1941 Hollywood Reporter news item, Dietrich sprained her ankle during production and had to finish the picture wearing a cast. Fred MacMurray was borrowed from Paramount to appear in this picture. On March 3, 1943, Lux Radio Theatre broadcast a radio version of the story, starring Kay Francis.
