Facts about

"The Screen Guild Theater" broadcast a 30 minute radio adaptation of the movie on June 4, 1945 with William Powell reprising his film role.
Director Alexander Hall was borrowed from Columbia but had to leave to direct Once Upon a Time before this production was finished filming. Vincente Minnelli took over as director for the last 3 weeks of production, which may account for so many of the listed actors being cut from the final print.
Many cast members in studio records/casting call lists did not appear or were not identifiable in the movie. These were (with their character names): Howard M. Mitchell (Nicholas), Jacqueline Miller (W.U. Girl), Ralph Sanford (Policeman), John Sheehan (Policeman), Cliff Nazarro (Milkman), Phillip Terry (Whitley's Assistant), Lloyd Ford (Ethel's Husband), Rex Evans (Photo Insert of Hermann Göring) and Bobby Watson (Photo Insert of Adolf Hitler) (W.U. Girl undoubtedly stands for Western Union Girl, but no telegrams were seen delivered). In a Hollywood Reporter news item, Arno Frey and Dudley Dickerson were listed as cast members, but they were not seen either.
