A news item in Hollywood Reporter noted that Lucille Ball was slated for the female lead in this picture. A Hollywood Reporter chart lists Robert Wise as editor, but Mr. Wise confirmed that he did not work on this film. Although the Motion Picture Herald review lists Paul Hurst as the bartender, the Call Bureau Cast Service credits John Sheehan with the part. Modern sources state that studio publicity exploited the appearance of Howard Hughes's record-breaking transcontinental aircraft in this picture. This was the last film written by Nathanael West, who died on December 22, 1940.
