According to Hollywood Reporter news items, M. H. Hoffman had originally prepared this film for production, presumably for Liberty Pictures Corp., before its consolidation into Republic earlier in 1935. The exact nature of his participation in the final film has not been determined. Hollywood Reporter also noted that Mel Brown was signed to direct the picture, and that George Waggner and Lee Freeman worked on the script. The writers' contribution to the completed film, however, has not been confirmed. According to modern sources, Louise Brooks was tested for a role in the picture. Dancing Feet was remade by Republic in 1940 as Melody and Moonlight. Although author Rob Eden is not credited in the later film, Dave Silverstein is credited with "original story" for both pictures.
