NOTES

powered by AFI

Daniel Ahearn's story was entitled "Desperate Youth." According to news items in Film Daily, Helen Mack, Jean Parker and J. Farrell MacDonald were considered for roles. Modern sources credit Perc Westmore with makeup and Robert Presnell as producer. Dorothy Coonan, who plays Sally, had been a lead Busby Berkeley dancer. She quit films soon after completing this film to wed director Wellman, to whom she was married until his death in 1975. According to a modern source, as a publicity stunt to boost this picture and Coonan's career, a news story was planted in the New York Sun noting that the freckle-faced Coonan had taken out a $100,000 insurance policy to protect her in case she "lost" her freckles. The news item, which is reproduced in a Wellman biography, states that her Warner Bros. contract required her to have freckles.
