The working titles of this film were No Other Woman, Debbie's Escape and Mme. McCoy and the Pirate. As noted in a New York Times news item, Elsa Lanchester's character "Madame Brizar," while presented as the headmistress of a girl's finishing school in order to comply with PCA code regulations, is clearly meant to be the madam of an upper-class New Orleans bordello. According to Universal press materials, nearly four acres of the studio's back lot was tied up in sets for Buccaneer's Girl, including an exact replica of New Orleans' French Quarter, circa 1810.
