The opening cast list is followed by photographs of the principal players, grouped together and captioned by the following character descriptions: "The Lovers" (Farley Granger and Shelley Winters); "The Mother-in-Law" (Margalo Gillmore); "The Smuggler" (Henry Corden); "His Partners" (Elisha Cook, Jr., Glenn Anders and Lon Chaney); "The Buyers" (Sheldon Leonard and Marvin Kaplan); "The Hijackers" (Francis L. Sullivan and Hans Conried); "The Law" (Allen Jenkins, William Demarest and Ralph Sanford); "Archie" ("Archie" the dog). The actors' names are not included with their photographs. Although their photographs are seen, Henry Corden's and Ralph Sanford's names do not appear in the opening cast list. The end cast list, labelled "in order of their disappearance," is superimposed over footage of the actors. Cast members' names appear at the end in the following order: Elisha Cook, Jr., Hans Conried, Henry Corden, Francis L. Sullivan, Marvin Kaplan, Sheldon Leonard, Lon Chaney, Farley Granger, Shelley Winters, Margalo Gillmore, William Demarest, "Archie." The title song is heard only over the opening and end credits. RKO borrowed Granger from Samuel Goldwyn's company for the production. In the picture, the smugglers' contraband is never identified.
