Towards the end of the film, the action takes place at the "Jane Drake Theatre," where "Jane Drake" is appearing a play called "Bedtime Story," written by "Lucius Drake". These characters, the play and the theatre are all left over from Bedtime Story (1941), also produced by Columbia Pictures a few months earlier, starring Loretta Young and Fredric March in the Drake roles.

Third film in Columbia's Boston Blackie series has Blackie (Chester Morris) tracking down a prison escapee who escaped during one of Blackie's shows. Lew Landers (The Raven) returns to direct this entry and like the previous film in the series, this one here moves at a very fast pace but for some reason most of the comedy is left out of this film. The mystery isn't all that compelling either, although the first half of the film works the best with the second half losing some of its fire. Morris is really good here as he seems to really have the role down to ease.
