Facts about

Producer Mark Hellinger's dislike for executive producer Hal B. Wallis became even stronger after this film was released. Though the film was critically acclaimed and made money for Warners, print ads at the time mentioned Wallis as executive producer (though uncredited in the film), Jack L. Warner in charge of production and Lewis Seiler as director, but did not even mention Hellinger, who had received screen credit as producer. This was one of the contributing factors in Hellinger's shortly thereafter leaving Warners for 20th Century-Fox.
