The film's onscreen credits list the title of Leslie Sands's play as Deadlock, although it was published as Thrse Raquin in 1985. The play, based on mile Zola's novel Thrse Raquin (Paris, 1868), was performed in England in 1985 as Deadlock. No earlier performances have been found. Another Man's Poison was produced in England and released there in November 1951. According to modern sources, Paul Sawtell's score was added to the American release.
The film was the first that actress Bette Davis made in England. Many modern sources point to Another Man's Poison as the beginning of a slump in Davis' career. In June 1954, Hollywood Reporter reported that the film would be broadcast on television, but its first air date has not been determined. According to a November 30, 1990 Hollywood Reporter item, the picture "was long tied up in litigation"; however, the nature of the dispute has not been determined.
