The plot summary was based on a screen continuity in the Twentieth Century-Fox Produced Scripts Collection, and the onscreen credits were taken from a screen credit sheet in the Twentieth Century-Fox Records of the Legal Department, both of which are at the UCLA Theater Arts Library. This was English actress Wendy Barrie's first American film. According to information in the legal records, Vivian Tobin was originally cast as "Nancy Naylor" and Robert Burns as "Buck Bogardus." According to a Daily Variety news item, Spencer Tracy was hit above the right eye with a plate durig a dish-tossing scene between him and Wendy Barrie, and production was stopped for a few days because the wound prevented Tracy from wearing heavy makeup. A Film Daily news item noted that a transplanted barn on director Irving Cummings' estate in the San Fernando Valley, which formed a background for the first production he ever acted in, At the Window, in Mount Vernon, NY, would be used as a background in this film.
