The working title of this film was Loan Shark. Although an August 1936 Hollywood Reporter news item listed Howard J. Green as the film's producer, his participation in the final film has not been determined. According to the file for the film in the MPAA/PCA Collection at the AMPAS Library, the PCA received a number of complaints from loan companies regarding the proposed film. The file also indicates that Columbia agreed to add material to the film to make a clear distinction between disreputable loan operations and reputable, licensed ones.
