The working title of this film was Murder Plane. W. H. Moran, who compiled the material on which the story was based, was a former chief of the United States Secret Service. Although Screen Achievements Bulletin credits First National as the production company, it is not listed in onscreen credits. A Hollywood Reporter production chart credits Arthur Edeson, not Ted McCord, as photographer. This picture was the first in Warner Bros.' Secret Service series. The series consisted of four films, all starring Ronald Reagan as Lieutenant "Brass Bancroft" of the U.S. Secret Service and Eddie Foy Jr. as his sidekick "Gabby." The 1940 film Murder in the Air was the last in the series. For additional information about the series, consult the Series Index.
