Trivia:

After his success with The Black Cat (1934) for Universal, Fox wanted to borrow Ulmer for a Shirley Temple musical. The director walked out on his contract rather than do it, consigning himself to Poverty Row studios like PRC, where he could choose his own subject matter, for his career. See more »
