This film was rejected by the New York state censors on September 16, 1936, and was not screened in New York until mid-May 1937 when it appeared under the title Vice Racket. The Variety review from May 1937 states that the film was an Albert Dezel production, although the viewed print does not mention him. According to a July 27, 1936 Hollywood Reporter news item, the film's story was suggested by the recent trial of noted gangster Lucky Luciano. According to Film Daily, the film was banned by Mayor William Guilfoyle of Council Bluffs, Iowa after Omaha mayor Dan Butler barred the screenings of "so-called sex films." Scenes from this picture were incorporated into a 1943 J. D. Kendis production entitled Teen Age (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1941-50).
