"District Attorney Michael W. Norris" provides a sporadic voice-over narration throughout the film. Although a May 1957 Hollywood Reporter news item stated that Harry Essex wrote the screen story with Daniel B. Ullman, the extent of Essex' contribution to the film has not been determined. According to a January 1958 Hollywood Reporter news item, a song titled "Living in the Shadow of the Past" was recorded for inclusion in the film, but it was not performed in the viewed print. Although a Hollywood Reporter production chart places Ainslie Pryor in the cast, his appearance in the released film has not been confirmed. A letter from blacklisted screenwriter Bernard Gordon contained in the film's production file at the AMPAS Library and the WGA confirm that Gordon wrote the screenplay for the film using the pseudonym Raymond T. Marcus. In addition, the WGA restored the credit for Gordon's co-writer Julian Zimet.
