Source of Film
story by Vera Caspary
Caspary had published 3 novels when Paramount bought the rights to her short-lived play Blind Mice (1930) and released it as Working Girls in 1931. She was hired as a contract writer and wrote the story/screenplay for 3 films before contributing the story for Easy Living.
Preston Sturges, the screenwriter, in his first effort for Paramount, kept very little of the original story.
