The casting was announced in June 1936.[2] Many former silent era actors had small roles.[3]


Frank Nugent of The New York Times was critical of the film: "It is, as you may judge, a pretty hoary melodrama and [a] slight enough excuse for a whole series of homilies upon the uncertainty of fame and fortune in the glamour city."[4]
