The film's opening title card reads: "Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer presents A New Dr. Gillespie Adventure Three Men in White." According to a mid-December 1943 Hollywood Reporter news item, production shut down temporarily because of a "flu epidemic," which laid up Van Johnson, Lionel Barrymore and uncredited producer Carey Wilson. Although Hollywood Reporter news items add Bobby Blake, later known as Robert Blake, to the cast, his participation in the final film has not been confirmed. As with many M-G-M films in 1944, Three Men in White was shown to overseas troops before its release in the U.S. For more information on the "Dr. Kildare/Dr.Gillespie" series, consult the Series Index and see entry for the 1938 film Young Dr. Kildare in AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1931-40; F3.5251 and the above entry for Calling Dr. Gillespie.
