This film was a sequel to Warner Bros.' 1944 picture Janie. Although a "Janie" series had been planned, Warner Bros. abandoned the idea after actress Joyce Reynolds, who played "Janie" in the 1944 film, temporarily retired from films to join her husband, a U.S. Marine, in Quantico, VA, according to a February 1945 studio press release. A February 2, 1945 Hollywood Reporter news item noted that director David Butler was replaced by Vincent Sherman after he was assigned to the Warner Bros. film The Time, the Place, the Girl. Actor Robert Benchley died in 1945. This was his final film.
