Sources conflict concerning the release date; while Motion Picture Herald release charts list January 15, 1937, a Twentieth Century-Fox advertising billing sheet gives the date as December 11, 1936. This was director Malcolm St. Clair's first film since 1933; Hollywood Reporter commented that his "long absence has not dulled his rare feeling for dramatic values." According to Motion Picture Herald, the airplane in the film was a working duplicate of Amelia Earhart's famous "Flying Laboratory." Duncan Renaldo is listed as a cast member in the Hollywood Reporter production charts; his participation in the final film has not been confirmed.
