According to a news item in Hollywood Reporter, the "Jack Dempsey Sequence," was filmed by Clyde De Vinna in New York, under George Seitz's direction. The sequence featured many popular sports figures of the day portraying themselves. Jack Dempsey's restaurant was a popular New York restaurant in the 1930s. This was the first film of actress Ruth Hussey (1911-2005), who was listed in the CBCS, as one of the mayor's secretaries, under the name Ruth March. Hussey, who received her first onscreen credit in Madame X, released on October 1, 1937 (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1931-40), was never billed onscreen as anything other than Ruth Hussey.
