The working titles of the film were Small Miracle and Night Drama. Although Mae Danish's assumed relationship with Eddie is never clarified and her pregnancy is never explicity stated, the film implies that she is asking for $200 so she can have an abortion. The Call Bureau Cast Service lists Greta Meyer and Christian Rub in the roles of Ma and Pa, but Bodil Rosing and Lee Kohlmar are credited on screen in those parts. A contemporary source notes that the theater in the film was variously referred to as the "41st Street" theater and the "43rd Street" theater. According to a biography on Carole Lombard, she offered to take a lead role in the film to assist director Mitchell Leisen, who was a good friend, but this idea was rejected by the studio, and Lombard instead helped produce the film.
