Facts about

Recorded with just a choral background since the American Federation of Musicians' wartime strike continued against Victor Records, Dinah Shore's blockbuster 78 of the Oscar-nominated, eternal love song, "I'll Walk Alone" (music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Sammy Cahn) held the apex of the "Billboard" singles chart for three weeks, between November 4 and November 18, 1944.

Decca Records (having settled with the musicians' union) released the record by Louis Jordan and His Tympany Five.

John Rawlins directed additional scenes after A. Edward Sutherland left the picture.
