Although some contemporary and modern sources list the film's title as Dear, Dead Delilah, the opening title card does not include a comma. John Farris' onscreen credit reads, "written and directed by." According to a March 1972 Hollywood Reporter news item, Dear Dead Delilah was originally rated X, but, following a successful appeal, the rating was changed to R prior to the picture's release. An April 1972 Variety news item reported that the film was shot on location in Nashville, TN.
