The film was produced at Teddington Studios by Warner Brothers' British subsidiary. To comply with the 1927 Films Act the company was obliged to distribute a number of British-made films each year, and during the 1930s the company produced a large quantity of films at Teddington. It was the ninth and final film that the music hall star Miller made for Warner Brothers.

The film's sets were by Norman Arnold, the resident art director at Teddington.
