The working titles for this film were The Kid from Paradise and King of the Gamblers. A modern source lists an alternate title of Czar of the Slot-Machines, and notes that an opening sequence of "Jim Adams" being jilted by "Joyce Beaton" (who, according to the Call Bureau Cast Service, was played by Louise Brooks) was shot but was eliminated from the final cut. Helen Burgess, age eighteen, died April 7, 1937, a few days before this film's preview, from pneumonia.
