Facts about

The Life magazine displayed at the San Francisco newspaper stand where Frank Bigelow stops is the publication from September 12, 1949, with Yugoslavia's leader, Marshal Josip Broz Tito on the cover.
"Screen Director's Playhouse" broadcast a 60 minute radio adaptation of the movie on June 21, 1951 with Edmond O'Brien reprising his film role.
The scene in which Bigelow runs in panic through the streets after learning he has been poisoned was a stolen shot. The pedestrians had no idea a movie was being made and no warning that Edmond O'Brien would be plowing through them.
