The working title of this film was The Young and the Damned. Although the opening credits include a 1959 copyright statement to Brigadier Pictures, Inc., the film was not registered for copyright at the time of its release. The onscreen credit for the hairstylist was partially illegible on the viewed print; only "Jeannette Mar" could be discerned.
According to a January 6, 1959 Hollywood Reporter news item, the role of "Carrie Anders" was originally set for Venetia Stevenson. Although January 1959 Hollywood Reporter news items add Thomas B. Henry and Linda Gibson to the cast, their appearance in the final film has not been confirmed. Variety reported in April 1960 that Robert Roark had independently produced The Girl in Lovers Lane, which Roger Corman's production company, The Filmgroup, then acquired for distribution.
