NOTES

powered by AFI

The film's pre-release title was Tonight's Our Night. The play opened in New York on October 15, 1936. Melville Cooper originated his part on stage. According to news items in Hollywood Reporter, Allan Conrad was originally assigned the part of Georges Dupont. When he was replaced by Maurice Murphy due to new script conceptions, the changes necessitated six days of retakes. Earlier, Claudette Colbert's illness caused delays, putting the film several weeks behind schedule. The film was shot over 63 days at a total cost of $1,400,000 according to the production files at the AMPAS library. This film marked the American debut of German actor Curt Bois, who left Germany after the rise of the Nazis. A musical version of the play, directed by Peter Glenville and starring Jean-Pierre Aumont and Vivien Leigh, opened in New York on March 18, 1963.
