The viewed print of this film contained a 1948 copyright statement for All American News, Inc., but the film was not in the copyright registry. Although billed in the onscreen credits as "Mom," Jackie Mabley's character is referred to as "Moms" in the film, and she was known throughout her career as Jackie "Moms" Mabley. No information regarding the film's release date was found, but the picture was approved for exhibition in New York in 1948, and was subsequently reviewed in The Exhibitor on June 8, 1949. "Crip" Heard, who performs in the film, was a one-legged, one-armed dancer.
