Information in the file for the film in the MPAA/PCA Collection at the AMPAS Library reveals that in July 1938 the initial script was rejected by the PCA because of the "sex situations" contained therein. The script eventually was approved by the PCA after revisions. Hollywood Reporter production charts and PCA files indicate that Evelyn Keyes was first cast as Phyllis Carrington. According to the pressbook, Jacques Deval wrote the play Soubrette as a wedding present for his wife. One scene was filmed in the Rainbow Room restaurant at Rockefeller Plaza in New York, and other scenes were filmed in Central Park. Hollywood Reporter mistakenly credits Boris Karloff with musical direction.
