"Lux Radio Theater" broadcast a 60 minute radio adaptation of the movie onJune 18, 1945 with Charles Laughton and Margaret O'Brien reprising their film roles.

After 38 days of shooting, director Jules Dassin replaced Norman Z. McLeod. Although a news item stated it was due to a "difference of opinion," many believe it was done on the insistence of Charles Laughton. At the same time, William H. Daniels replaced Robert Planck as director of photography.

Some cast members in studio records/casting call lists did not appear or were not identifiable in the movie. These were (with their character names): David Thursby (Carpenter), Larry Wheat (Doctor) and Billy Bletcher (Window Washer). A contemporary news item listed Ethel Griffies as a cast member, but she was not seen in the movie either.
