The working title of this film was The Tatlock Millions. This film marked actor Richard Haydn's directorial debut. Information in the Paramount Collection at the AMPAS Library reveals that supervising editor Doane Harrison was also listed as co-director on this film. Harrison was supervising editor on all of director Billy Wilder's films, for which he was frequently listed off-screen as co-director. Wilder has stated in a modern interview that while this credit should not be interpreted as equal to the director, he considered Harrison a highly esteemed collaborator. Harrison was present on the set during shooting to add his input to the concept of the scenes, and to recommend certain shots. It is likely that Harrison also contributed in this manner to Miss Tatlock's Millions.
According to information in the Paramount Collection at the AMPAS Library, the entrance to the "Tatlock" estate was filmed in San Marino, the Hawaiian beach scene was shot in Corona del Mar, and other scenes were shot in Santa Barbara, CA.
