According to a November 25, 1946 Hollywood Reporter news item, the film treatment met with the approval of the MPAA in late Nov. On January 24, 1947, Los Angeles Daily News reported that although Ann Sheridan plays an adultress who is not punished, as the Production Code demands, the MPAA agreed to allow this if the film clearly conveyed the message that divorce is undesirable. A November 7, 1946 Hollywood Reporter news item noted that the film's starting date was postponed because of a studio strike. The film contains shots of Angel's Flight and MacArthur Park in Los Angeles. The house in which "Chris Hunter" and her husband "Bob," live is located in Beverly Hills. Although David Goodis and James Gunn are credited onscreen with creating an original screenplay, several reviewers noted the story's similarity to the 1940 Warner Bros. film The Letter (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1931-40; F3.2470) written by Howard Koch and starring Bette Davis, and some modern sources consider this film a remake of The Letter.
