According to February 1943 Hollywood Reporter and Daily Variety news items, F. Hugh Herbert's short story was purchased by Republic as a vehicle for John Wayne, who was to play either an aircraft factory foreman or a test pilot. Albert S. Rogell was originally assigned to direct and produce the picture. News items also announced that first Herbert and then Ethel Hill would adapt the story for the screen, but the extent of their contributions to the completed screenplay has not been determined. Although Twinkle Watts's onscreen credit reads "And introducing Twinkle Watts," the child actress had previously appeared in several Republic productions.
