Hollywood Reporter news items report the following: Rudy Vallee was set to star as "Mark Saunders" in this film, and Otis Garrett was scheduled to direct. However, Vallee was committed to another film, and Garrett was replaced when he had to undergo a major operation and cameraman Ted Tetzlaff was given this film as his directorial debut. John Mescall was listed as cameraman in a pre-production Hollywood Reporter news item. Ray Golden was assigned to work on the script; however, his contribution to the final film has not been determined. The Hollywood Reporter review states that the character played by William Wright was modelled after gossip columnist Herb Stein.
