The title of the film was taken from the Song of Solomon. II. 15: "Take us the foxes, the little foxes that spoil the vines; For our vines have tender grapes." Some Hollywood Reporter production charts list Connie Gilchrist in the cast, but she did not appear in the final film. Portions of the film were shot at the Rowland V. Lee Ranch in the San Fernando Valley of CA. In July 1946, according to a Hollywood Reporter news item, Mrs. Selma Martin, the estranged wife of author George Victor Martin, and Arnold Hansen, a Tacoma, WA, salesman, filed a $25,000 lawsuit against M-G-M, claiming that the film was based on their lives, and that the picture caused them to suffer "undue public attention, mental anguish and humiliation." The outcome of the suit is not known. Margaret O'Brien and Frances Gifford recreated their roles for a Lux Radio Theatre version of the story, which was broadcast on September 2, 1946.
