- Director Frank Capra tested the film in different areas of the US with four different endings to determine which one to keep. In one, John Willoughby commits suicide. In another, Ann Mitchell persuades him not to leap from City Hall. Inspired by a letter signed "John Doe," Capra filmed a fifth and final ending in which Mitchell talks some sense into Willoughby and then faints into his arms.
- The tune that the main characters constantly play on their sweet potatoes is "Hi-Diddle-Dee-Dee (An Actor's Life for Me)" from Pinocchio (1940)
