This film marked the return of actress Susan Peters to the screen after a three-year absence due to an accident in 1945 that left her wheelchair-bound. It was also her final film. In the early 1940's, Peters was billed as Suzanne Carnahan, her real name. Peters' last previous picture was the 1945 film Keep Your Powder Dry. According to a contemporary article in New York Times, producer Irving Cummings and his son Irving Cummings, Jr. formed the independent production company Signet Productions in conjunction with the Orsatti Agency, which represented Susan Peters. The article also notes that Signet signed a distribution deal with Columbia, which provided production facilities for them. Peters reportedly received thirty-three percent of the film's profits. According to a pre-production Hollywood Reporter news item, some background filming was set to take place at Lizard's Head, in Cornwall, England.
