"The Screen Guild Theater" broadcast a 30 minute radio adaptation of the movie on November 4, 1946 with George Brent reprising his film role.

Hedy Lamarr's singing voice was dubbed by Paula Raymond.

The title is a common variation of a line from Hippocrates, the Greek Father of Medicine: "Life is short, art is long, decision difficult, and experiment perilous." The line is recited by Nick Bederaux in the film.
