Although the viewed print contained a copyright statement for the year 1947, it was not included in the copyright registry. The viewed print was missing approximately ten minutes of the story. The film was Spencer Williams' last as a director. Modern sources note that filming took place in two Texas "juke joints": Dallas' Rose Room and Don's Keyhole in San Antonio. Juke Joint was considered a lost film for many years, until 1983, when a print was discovered in a Tyler, TX warehouse and identified by film historian G. William Jones.
