The working title of this film was Meet John Bonniwell. According to a Hollywood Reporter news item, Beryl Wallace was a star in the Earl Carroll variety shows, and the rest of the actresses portraying "Dance hall girls," including Eleanor Counts, Olivia Steele, Lorraine Clark, Barbara Clark, Beatrice Gray, Sylvia McKay and June Earle, were Ziegfeld Follies performers. Although the notorious James gang is referred to in the film, neither Jesse James nor his brother Frank are individually portrayed. A modern source includes Merrill McCormack and Jack Mulhall in the cast. Gerard Carbonara was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Music (Scoring of a Dramatic or Comedy Picture) for this film.
