The film's working titles were Dress Parade, Classmates and Anchors Aweigh. A dedication on screen honors the officers and midshipmen of the United States Naval Academy. New York Times and Variety both erroneously call Eddie Acuff's character "Slim." According to New York Times, the picture was filmed largely at the Naval Academy at Annapolis, MD and the Navy department loaned the production an officer and two midshipmen to act as advisers. News items in Daily Variety note that arrangements were made to broadcast the Hollywood Hotel radio program (on which Dick Powell appeared) from the location. According to modern sources, another working title of the film was Navy Sweethearts. Modern sources credit Bobby Connolly with choreography and add Madeline Borzage to the cast.
