An early title for this film was Sensation. A still from the production shows Gertrude Michael in the cast, but her appearance in the final film has not been confirmed. According to a news item in Motion Picture Daily on February 24, 1932, Paramount closed its Astoria, Long Island studio on March 1, 1932 upon the completion of this film. The Astoria Studios became known as Eastern Service Studios and, beginning in 1934, were used by Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur for four films that were released by Paramount (see the entry for Crimes Without Passion above). The film's pressbook states that autogyro (helicopter) scenes were made at Floyd Bennett Field in New York with Jim Ray at the controls. Earlier versions of this film include the 1916 Essanay film The Misleading Lady, directed by Arthur Berthelet and starring Henry B. Walthall and Edna Mayo, and the 1920 Metro film of the same title, directed by George Irving and George W. Terwilliger and starring Bert Lytell and Lucy Cotton (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1911-20; F1.2964 and F1.2965).
