Universal liked the film so much, they assigned Lubin to make Forgotten Boys a film about young men facing unemployment out of college. (It appears this film was never made).[4]




The film was based on a magazine story by Quentin Reynolds, "West Side Miracle". Universal purchased the screen rights in July 1936.[5] Arthur Lubin signed to direct in September 1938.[6] Filming started 26 September.[7][8]


The Christian Science Monitor said it was "Abundant in negative qualities".[9] The new York Times said it had an "Exhaustive collection of melodramatic coincidences."[10]
