Although a published list of onscreen credits in the film's production file at the AMPAS Library contains the following acknowledgment: "Scenes at Carrillo Beach through the courtesy of California Department of Natural Resources, division of Beaches and Parks," that acknowledgment was not on the viewed print. The last names of "Virginia" and "Charlie" are listed as "Wilson" in the Variety, but the name is "Weston" in the film's dialogue.
       The Variety review notes that the film takes place in San Francisco, but the sets are not modeled on the Victorian architecture characteristic of San Francisco. Although an October 1957 Hollywood Reporter news item states that screenwriter Robert Blees was to write lyrics for the film's theme song "Mimi," that song was not in the viewed print. The Hollywood Reporter review states that the film was shot in CinemaScope, but the onscreen credits make no mention of the widescreen process, nor does any other review.
