A February 1942 press release announced that Olivia De Havilland, John Garfield and Jeffrey Lynn would star in the film. SAB ascribes the screenplay credit to Irwin Shaw and Daniel Fuchs, and lists Peter Viertel only as a contributor to screenplay construction. According to a May 15, 1977 letter from Fuchs, who received an onscreen screenwriting credit with Viertel, however, the SAB listing is incorrect. The letter confirms the credits as given onscreen. Ida Lupino won the New York Film Critics Award for Best Actress of 1943 for her performance in the film. A radio version of this film was broadcast by Lux Radio Theatre on March 20, 1943, and starred Miriam Hopkins and Franchot Tone.
