The film opens with the following prologue: "Just a few years ago-when a voyage to America meant adventure and not flight...when a quota was a number-and not a lottery prize to be captured by a lucky few..." A pre-production news item in Film Daily lists Irmgard von Cube as the film's author, but the extent of von Cube's contribution to the released film has not been determined. This was director Robert Florey's first picture under his Columbia contract. According to a modern source, Peter Lorre's "mask" was created by using white powder and two pieces of tape.
