It is based on Bayard Veiller's play The Trial of Mary Dugan. The film is a Spanish-language version of the 1929 hit The Trial of Mary Dugan. It was decided by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer to remake the film for the Spanish market rather than subtitle or dub it as it contained long periods of static talking during the courtroom scenes.[1] French and German versions were also made.

The film re-used the sets designed by Cedric Gibbons for the original 1929 film.
