The film's working titles were Dude Rancher, Howdy Stranger and The Brooklyn Cowboy. Captain Rose's Amateur Hour was intended as a burlesque of the long running radio program Major Bowes' Original Amateur Hour, whose most famous discovery was Frank Sinatra. The film was remade by Warner Bros. in 1948 as Two Guys from Texas, directed by David Butler and starring Dennis Morgan and Jack Carson.
