Sources disagree concerning Wanda Tuchock's credits. While the onscreen credits state simply that the film is "by" Tuchock, reviews and other sources list her as either the sole writer of the original story, the co-story writer (with Eugene Thackrey) and co-dialoguer, or the author of the story and the screenplay. According to Motion Picture Herald's "In the Cutting Room," Eileen Percy, a film-actress-turned-newspaper-columnist, was to be in the cast, but her participation in the final film has not been confirmed. Pert Kelton, whose "Mae Westian" performance was singled out by reviewers, was a Ziegfeld Follies dancing comedienne. Modern sources state that Phillips Holmes was cast first in the part of "Dan," but was replaced by Joel McCrea early in the production, and that Harold Hecht choreographed the Mardi Gras sequence.
