Stage star Peggy Shannon was one of ten young actresses chosen by Paramount in 1931 for an opportunity in motion pictures. According to the New York Times, five days after her arrival in Hollywood, Shannon took over the role from Clara Bow, who had a nervous collapse while rehearsing for the film, in the starring role. The play was previously filmed by Paramount in 1915 as The Woman, directed by George Melford and starring Theodore Roberts and Lois Meredith (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1911-20; F1.5058) and in 1927 as The Telephone Girl, directed by Herbert Brenon and starring Madge Bellamy and Holbrook Blinn (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1921-30; F2.5546).
