The working titles of this film were The Broadway Story and The Restless Angel. Although a 1944 Hollywood Reporter news item indicates that Paramount purchased the screen rights to the Vinton Freedley musical Red, Hot and Blue, which opened in New York on October 29, 1936, only the title was used for this film. Actress Julie Adams made her motion picture debut in the film, billed under her real name, Betty Adams. Composer Frank Loesser also made his acting debut in Red, Hot and Blue. Copyright records indicate that members of the Pasadena Playhouse appeared in the film.
