"Lux Radio Theater" broadcast a 60 minute radio adaptation of the movie onApril 14, 1941 with John Garfield reprising his film role.

The original ending of the film called for Joe and Mabel to be shot to death, but the commercial failure of You Only Live Once, which had a tragic ending, compelled the Warner Bros. studio heads to demand a happy ending. When writer Robert Rossen refused to write the new ending, Seton I. Miller was brought in to write it.
