The working titles of this film were Service, Yesterday's Rich and The New Deal. Motion Picture Herald reviewed the film as The New Deal. The following quotation from Franklin D. Roosevelt's 1933 book Looking Forward, which the filmmakers acknowledge as the source of the film's title, appears in an onscreen foreword: "We need enthusiasm, imagination and ability to face facts-we need the courage of the young." Variety notes that Harry Rapf's onscreen associate producer credit was a "departure on the Metro lot."
