The working title of this film was Swing It, Sister. Hollywood Reporter news items noted that British music publisher Jimmy Campbell was hired as musical technical advisor and that British comic Vic Oliver was part of the cast, but Oliver was not in the released film. Although pre-production Hollywood Reporter news items stated that Jack Hylton and his orchestra, Ray Noble and his band and Roger Pryor, leading Manny Harmon's band, all worked on the musical numbers, and that Forman Brown provided some of the music and lyrics, Hylton and Noble were not in the released film and the appearance of Pryor and Harmon's band has not been confirmed. Richard Fraser was borrowed from Warner Bros. and Brenda Joyce from Twentieth Century-Fox for the film. According to other news items in Hollywood Reporter, portions of the film were shot on location in London.
