Description by OLDIES.com:
As the girl from the Show-Me state, Harlow shows her comedy flair, abetted by the snappy co-scripting of her personal friend Anita Loos and by the nimble guidance of filmmaker Jack Conway, who would direct her in Libeled Lady. Lionel Barrymore plays the big shot scheming to keep his enamored son (Franchot Tone) away from Eadie. Good luck with that, Pops!
- Additional cast: Hale Hamilton (Charlie Turner).
- The Hays Office, which approved films for distribution, was said to have "unofficially rejected" the movie.
- In order to comply with the Hays Code, MGM, authorized script changes. This caused director Sam Wood to quit in the middle of production; Jack Conway replaced him. To this day it is not known how much footage (if any) was directed by Wood. It is assumed that cinematographer Hal Rosson quit the picture at the same time as Wood. Ray June replaced him.
- Sound by the Western Electric Sound System.
