Trivia

During the sneak preview performance first-time feature director Fred Zinneman noticed that all the MGM executives got up and walked out together. Zinneman later found out that it had nothing to do with the film. They had just gotten the news that Carole Lombard had been killed in a plane crash.

The plot was based on an entry in MGM's "Crime Does Not Pay" series directed by Harold S. Bucquet. Ironically director Fred Zinneman had started his American director career in the series.

Some cast members in studio records/casting call lists did not appear or were not identifiable in the movie. These were (with their character names, if any): Connie Gilchrist (Mrs. Harrison Chetwode), Naomi Childers (Miss Huser), Mary Currier (Manager), Charles Wagenheim (Martin), 'Florence Wright' (Saleslady), Harry Strang and Ted Oliver. Childers was apparently replaced by May McAvoy.

At the very beginning of the film is a shot of a city's downtown, taken from atop a skyscraper. At the very center is a tall office building, with a sign on top, seen from behind (the writing is backwards). It clearly reads, "First National Bank of Omaha".
