The film's pre-release title was Castles in the Air. The synopsis and credits were taken from the studio cutting continuity. A news item in Daily Variety notes that the credits on the preview version of the film erroneously credited Grace Hamilton's lyrics to Grace Valentine. Hamilton was married to Jack Stern, who with Bernie Grissman wrote all of Russ Columbo's numbers. According to Universal Pictures files, scenes were filmed on location at the Hollywood Theater, Madison Square Garden and the Apollo Theater. According to contemporary sources, popular singer and bandleader Russ Columbo was killed in a gun accident at the home of a friend shortly after completion of the film. He was twenty-six years old.
