This film's working title was The Great Speculator. Hair stylist Loretta Francel's name was misspelled in the opening credits as "Francelle." The Lovable Cheat was the first film made by Skyline Productions, a company formed by producers Richard Oswald and Edward Lewis. The play on which the film is based was not performed until after Honor de Balzac's death in 1850.
