Facts about

According to screenwriter Hildegarde Stadie, the main character of Burma Roberts was inspired by a real woman, Burma White, about whom little is know. This appears to be the same case that was dramatized in an episode ('Burma White Case') of the radio program 'Calling All Cars' that was broadcast December 6, 1933.

In 1938, Roadshow Attractions distributed this with the short film How to Undress in Front of Your Husband.
