Although Hollywood Reporter production charts list actor John Tyrell in the cast, his appearance in the released film has not been confirmed. Censorship material in the MPAA/PCA Collection at the AMPAS Library indicates that in February 1940 the PCA informed Columbia that a number of changes in the script were necessary before the film could receive certification. Among the many demands by PCA were that the "radio announcer must not be characterized, in any way, as a pansy"; that the drinking in the film be "held to an absolute minimum"; that the hiccoughing be eliminated; that the "business of Pete slapping and cuffing Joan" be eliminated; that the film not reveal the details of the crime; and that there be "no showing of panties or other particularly intimate garments."
