NOTES

The working title of this film was Where Are My Children?. Although this picture was promoted as "The First Drama of Juvenile Delinquency to Reach the Screen," many earlier films had dealt with this topic. A news item in Hollywood Reporter noted that William Randolph Hearst instructed his chain of papers to support the film because it tied in with his anti-juvenile delinquency campaign. According to a October 17, 1943 news item in New York Times, the OWI initially opposed the production of films dealing with the topic of delinquency because it was feared they could be used as anti-American propaganda by the Germans. Charles P. Taft, the director of War Services for the Federal Security Agency, appealed to the OWI to reverse their policy and allow the production of these films in the interest of homefront welfare, according to the article. This picture marked the screen debut of Evelyn Eaton, and also featured Jackie Cooper's last performance before joining the armed forces.
