One of over 700 Paramount productions, filmed between 1929-49, which were sold to MCA/Universal in 1958 for television distribution, and have been owned and controlled by Universal ever since. However, because of legal complications, this particular title was not included in the original television package and may have never been televised.

Film debut of Franchot Tone.

Film inspired partly by the then recent crime-busting activities of New York's Seabury Committee.
