Trivia
Although the Fox Film Corporation produced the movie, it was distributed after the merger with Twentieth Century, which began trading on May 31, 1935. Fox Film Corporation is listed as the copyright owners on the print, but Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation is the only owners in the copyright registry.

Spencer Tracy's erratic behavior on this film helped seal his fate with 20th-Century Fox. During filming Tracy disappeared from the set for weeks while on a drunken binge. He reportedly also showed up to the set one day surly and hungover and fell asleep in the "Manhattan apartment" set. The studio locked the stage while he was still asleep and Tracy woke up in a rage, and started destroying sets, reportedly causing thousands of dollars worth of damage for which the studio billed him.

Remarkably, outtakes still survive from this film. Raw footage of the clapperboard and the setup for a dance number with 16-year-old Rita Hayworth are included in the documentary Rita (2003).
