This picture promoted itself as a vehicle for showing off the thirteen 1934 Wampas Baby Stars (titles awarded young actresses annually by the Western Association of Motion Picture Advertisers), including star Judith Allen. Cast members Williams, Hayes, Carmen, Arlen, Meredith, Lund, Gale, Bryson, Drake, Hovey, Judge and Keef were the other twelve Wampas winners. Trade reviews differ concerning writing credits. Several sources credit both Santley and Krims with the story, and Martin and Clark with dialogue but not with "construction," as listed in the copyright entry. Although reviews credit Bernie Grossman and Jack Stern as songwriters, their contribution to the final film has not been confirmed. According to Daily Variety, John Miljan replaced Donald Cook in the role of Gordon Douglas after Cook, whom Mascot had borrowed from Columbia, "walked." Film Daily noted that at a certain point in the film, the story stops for a "musical revue with some vaudeville acts (Shaw and Lee) thrown in."
