The working title of the film was They Knew What Happened. Screen Achievements Bulletin records that a dispute in October 1937 over writer credits occurred because Bertram Millhauser felt that as Eddie Welch only contributed "a few lines" to the script, he did not deserve screen credit. Paramount supported Welch, noting that "Mr. Welch is entitled to his credits on the script as he added laughs and good lines," although he did only 7% of the script. The file notes that Millhauser withdrew his protest because he felt that it was "not a case of justice but politics." This picture marked the film debut of Laraine Johnson, who later changed her name to Laraine Day.
