Although Huston had previously sung on the Broadway stage, this film marks the first time the actor sang on screen. Some scenes were shot on location in Monterey, CA. Gloria Warren and Patty Hale made their motion picture debuts in this film, and the film also marked Jo Graham's directorial debut after several years of working as a dialogue director for Warner Bros.
