A press release notes that the Cape Cod scenes were filmed in Laguna Beach, CA. This film marked the only time that Bette Davis produced her own film, under the B. D. Productions banner. Karel J. Benes' novel was also the basis for the 1939 British film A Stolen Life starring Elisabeth Bergner and Michael Redgrave and directed by Paul Czinner. Although an earlier version of the novel was probably published, the National Union Catalog only lists a 1947 publication date. William McGann and Nathan Levinson were nominated for an Academy Award for Best Special Effects. Bette Davis and Glenn Ford reprised their roles in a Lux Radio Theatre broadcast on August 25, 1947.
