Roughly Speaking was based on the life of Louise Randall Pierson. Warner Bros. purchased the film rights to her story for $35,000, according to a July 13, 1943 Hollywood Reporter news item. Pierson was the mother of noted writer-director Frank R. Pierson, who won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for the 1975 film Dog Day Afternoon. Rosalind Russell and Jack Carson reprised their roles in a Lux Radio Theatre broadcast on October 8, 1945.
