The giant vases in the set of the Pelican Club were a last-minute inspiration of art director Ernst Fegté. He had originally commissioned legendary sculptor Tony Duquette to do large statues for the set, but producer Samuel Goldwyn, who'd approved the sketches of Duquette's sculptures, decided he didn't like them once they were actually built. Eventually Fegte arranged to sell Duquette's sculptures to MGM and thought of using the giant vases to replace them.

Assistant art director McClure Capps was producer Samuel Goldwyn's son-in-law. His wife, Ruth Capps, was Goldwyn's daughter by his first wife, Blanche Lasky. However, that marriage ended so bitterly that Goldwyn never publicly acknowledged it and led people to believe his second wife, Frances Howard, was his only one.
