According to Hollywood Reporter, this film was announced in November 1935 as Loretta Young's first film after her return to the studio, but she appeared in a number of other Twentieth Century-Fox films before this went into production. Jean Hersholt was listed in news items for a leading role, and his name appears in the Hollywood Reporter production charts, but he was not in the final film. Although an Motion Picture Herald review of a preview screening in February 1937 lists Bill Robinson in the credits and Robinson is listed in Hollywood Reporter production charts, his name is crossed off the trade advertising billing sheet, which listed him on the title card after Charles Winninger. While he was not in the viewed print, he May have been in a cut dancing sequence.
