The working titles of this film were Babes on Broadway and Angels Without Wings. According to Hollywood Reporter news items, Carol Adams and June Johnson were to appear in the picture, and Harold Yates was to work on the script. Adams and Johnson are not included in the cast, and Yates's contribution to the completed picture has not been confirmed. According to the MPAA/PCA Collection at the AMPAS Library, the PCA advised Republic that the character of "Don Pablo Vincente" would "undoubtedly give great offense to Latin Americans" and that the "release of this film in Latin America would be a disservice to the cause of hemispheric solidarity." A Hollywood Reporter news item noted that Repubic's decision not to release the film in Latin America was "purely voluntary," and that the studio felt "it would rather take a loss in revenue than invite antagonism from our South American neighbors." The picture marked Marilyn Hare's film debut and also marked the final screen appearance of long-time character actor Clarence Wilson (also known as Clarence Hummel and Clarence Hummel Wilson and Wilson Hummel), who died on October 5, 1941.
