In the scene where Barbara Stanwyck, playing the new bride, was supposed to be carried across the threshold by her husband, she and director Robert Z. Leonard cooked up a practical joke and draped her body with heavy chains under the mink coat she wore, making it impossible for Van Heflin to pick her up.

In Britain the letters B. F. have a vulgar connotation, so the title was changed in the U.K. to the simpler "Polly Fulton."
