The film was made by the German subsidiary of Universal Pictures to whom Gaal was under contract. However the rise of the Nazi Party to power meant that Gaal and several other Jewish figures involved with the film had to work in Budapest and Vienna. The film's sets were designed by art director Emil Hasler.

In 1940 the film was remade in Hollywood as Spring Parade. The screenwriter Ernst Marischka and producer Joe Pasternak worked on both films.
