According to screenwriter Hildegarde Stadie, the main character of Burma Roberts was inspired by a real woman, Burma White, about whom little is known. 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. See more »

FOREWORD: For centuries the world has been aware of the narcotic menace. We have complacently watched Asiatic countries attempt to rid themselves of DRUGS CURSE, and attributed their failure to lack of education. We consider ourselves enlightened, and think that never could we succumb to such a fate. But - did you know that - the use of Marihuana is steadily increasing among the youth of this country? Did you know that - the youthful criminal is our greatest problem today? And that - Marihuana gives the user false courage, and destroys conscience, thereby making crime alluring, smart? That is the price we are paying for our lack of interest in the narcotic situation. This story is drawn from an actual case history on file in the police records of one of our large cities. Note: MARIHUANA, Hashish of the Orient, is commonly distributed as a doped cigarette. Its most terrifying effect is that it fires the user to extreme cruelty and license. See more »
Censor boards in Ohio also had their share of desired cuts. They were:
The line "No honeymooning till after we're married."
Shots of partiers rolling around on the floor togeather in the beach house.
Shot of Joanne preparing to go swimming.
All shots of the women running around on the beach (and presumably all footage of them undressing beforehand).
When Tony says "I'm going yo send you away to have your baby.", the "to have your baby" part was cut.
Newspaper headline "Federal Authorities Powerless To Supress Marihuana Triaffic!" was cut.
The scene in which Burma plots to kidnap her sister's child was ordered to be cut on the grounds that it had dialogue like "you know what the wrap is for a snatch job."
This film is pure propaganda. It pretty much over exaggerates how marijuana (or marihuana) can ruin lives and cause kids to do all sorts of lewd things. Hogwash! This film came at a time when the federal government was looking for something else to blame the problems of the country on, so they picked marijuana. Also, this film plays like a bad version of Stella Dallas when Burma has to give up her daughter to give her a better life. This film also suffers from bad acting, a bad script and even bad jokes (check out the scene where the drunk spills his beer at the beginning).
