The working title of this film was Man from the City. According to news items in Hollywood Reporter, backgrounds for the film were shot prior to principal photography, commencing on March 4, 1941. Another Hollywood Reporter news item noted that actress Veda Ann Borg was released from her Monogram Pictures contract just prior to the start of this film and was subsequently put under contract to M-G-M. M-G-M made an earlier version of Mauri Grashin's original story in 1934. That film, entitled Hide-out, co-starred Robert Montgomery and Maureen O'Sullivan, and was directed by W. S. Van Dyke from a screenplay by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1931-40 F3.1904).
