The working title for this film was Good Intentions. The Opening narration is accompanied by shots of the New York skyline at night, the front of a suburban mansion, and inside it, "Sally Martin" peeking out from behind a curtain. In the film, after falling in love with Sally, "Ogden" writes new lyrics to the 1944 hit song "Swinging on a Star" from Going My Way. Due to a press error, the Daily Variety and Hollywood Reporter reviews erroneously credit actor Victor Moore with music, although Werner Heymann is credited on the screen. Paul Armstrong's play was also the basis of the 1925 Paramount film Paths to Paradise, directed by Clarence Badger and starring Betty Compson and Raymond Griffith (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1921-30; F2.4171).
