According to a July 15, 1947 Los Angeles Times news item, Thames Williamson was first assigned to write the screenplay for the film, and Vincent Sherman was to direct. A December 2, 1947 news item in Los Angeles Examiner reported that Ronald Reagan was to star in the film, which at that time was to be directed by Raoul Walsh. Studio press material states that this was the first film to use director of photography Karl Freund's newly developed "Spectra" device, a color temperature meter which was designed to eliminate the guesswork from color photography.
