The film was directed by Vorhaus at Elstree Studios for the independent producer Joe Rock. Its Lancashire setting was an attempt to capitalise on the popularity of the George Formby series of films.[1]

Cotton Queen was the final film Vorhaus made in Britain. Following the collapse of Julius Hagen's Twickenham Studios, where he had directed most of his films during the previous few years, he returned to the United States.[1]
