Arthur Somer Roche's novel also appeared as a serial in Hearst's International-Cosmopolitan (publication date undetermined). The working title of the film was Penthouse Legend. According to an August 1933 Hollywood Reporter news item, Ayn Rand worked on the film's screenplay. The exact nature of her contribution, if any, has not been determined. Although Hollywood Reporter announced that Lucien Hubbard was to be the associate producer on the production, Hunt Stromberg is credited on the screen in that capacity. M-G-M borrowed Warner Baxter from Fox for the production. A mid-July 1933 Film Daily news item announced Madge Evans as a co-star, but she did not appear in the film. In 1939, M-G-M remade Roche's story as Society Lawyer .
