Facts about

Raymond Massey and Ruth Gordon had previously played a married couple as Abraham and Mary Lincoln in Abe Lincoln in Illinois.
The production shoot for this movie went forty-five days over schedule.
When shooting the scene early in the movie, when their characters abandoned ship from their burning tanker, Humphrey Bogart and Raymond Massey got into a friendly argument over who had the better stunt double. In the end, the two stars decided to do away with their stunt doubles altogether and wound up doing the stunt themselves. Massey elaborates on this anecdote in detail in his autobiography, 'A Hundred Different Lives'.
