Early Hollywood Reporter production charts list Cecil Kellaway in the cast, but his participation in the final film has not been confirmed. Some contemporary sources call Albert Bassermann's character "Basil Renner," although he is called "Arnold" in the film and in the film's program. AMPAS records and Hollywood Reporter production charts list Arthur Jacobson as assistant director, although Russ Matthews is listed in that capacity in the film's program. There was much publicity during production over the bobbing of Dorothy Lamour's long hair. Backgrounds for the picture were filmed in the interior of Burma (now Myanmar). According to the film's program, a fire broke out during filming at Goebbel's Wild Animal farm, killing two movie-trained elephants. They were replaced by elephants from the Hagenback-Wallace circus.
