A 4 August 1940 Hollywood Reporter news item notes that John Garfield was first assigned to the lead. Philip Dorn was borrowed from M-G-M for the role of "Eric." The Variety review notes that Warner Bros. announced last-minute changes to the film's script to include a reference to Rudolf Hess's March 10, 1941 flight to Scotland in an abortive attempt to negotiate a peace between Germany and Great Britain. The review points out that the advertised changes amounted to only a few lines of dialogue "without plot significance."
