The novel on which this film was based appeared serially in Collier's Magazine between October 13, 1934 and January 5, 1935. A Daily Variety pre-production news item listed Chuck Reisner as director. The picture marked Constance Collier's sound film debut. Daily Variety noted that M-G-M contracted Collier for "Marie Dressler-type" roles following Dressler's death. Although a Hollywood Reporter pre-production news item noted the addition of Rosalind Russell to the cast, she did not appear in the released film. Hollywood Reporter production charts indicate that actors Alice Lake and Harvey Stephens were in the cast, but their participation in the released film has not been confirmed.
