According to Hollywood Citizen-News, this film was based on an unpublished sketch by Ruth McKenney entitled "Washington, I Love You," but the locale was switched to San Diego by producers/screenwriters Michael Fessier and Ernest Pagano because of the glut of Washington housing shortage films being made in Hollywood at the time. Hollywood Reporter news items announced that the picture was originally to star Robert Paige and Louise Allbritton, but the two were replaced by Jon Hall and Susanna Foster in late March 1944. Allbritton, however, replaced Foster when the film finally went into production in April 1944. Film editor Charles Maynard died shortly before the release of this film.
