This picture marked the screen debut of James Stewart. A Hollywood Reporter pre-production article notes that the Hays Office initially rejected the story because its theme concerned murder for revenge. Hollywood Reporter production charts and pre-production news items list actors Frank Mayo, Robert Benchley and Charles Trowbridge in the cast, but their appearance in the released film has not been confirmed. The film was briefly tiled Crooked Alibi before its release, and was Tim Whelan's first picture for M-G-M.
