Contemporary sources note that Joe E. Brown had been a professional baseball player before becoming an actor. The film was shot over 30 days for a total budget of $200,000. Paramount filmed the play as Fast Company as a talkie starring Jack Oakie and directed by A. Edward Sutherland (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1921-30; F2.1655). Warner Bros. filmed the play again in 1939 as Cowboy Quarterback.
