The film's working title was Highway 99. A January 27, 1941 Hollywood Reporter news item notes that at that time Jane Wyman was cast in the film; she probably was cast in the role played by Brenda Marshall. The 1934 Warner Bros. film Heat Lightning, starring Aline MacMahon and directed by Mervyn LeRoy was also based on the play by Leon Abrams and George Abbott.
