A 17 January 1938 Hollywood Reporter news item refers to this film as Little Lady of Broadway. A pre-release Motion Picture Herald article credits Jimmy Durante with additional music and lyrics. A Twentieth Century-Fox publicity release lists Patricia Randolph in the cast, but her participation is not confirmed by contemporary reviews. Little Miss Broadway is not related to a 1947 Columbia film of the same name, directed by Arthur Dreifuss and starring Jean Porter. Jule Styne, in his autobiography, states that he was Shirley Temple's vocal coach for this film. Modern sources assert that executive producer Darryl F. Zanuck wrote most of the final screenplay for this film, and note that Eleanor Roosevelt visited Shirley Temple on the set during filming.
