The working title of this film was One Woman. According to a Hollywood Reporter news item, Paramount submitted various scripts based on Tiffany Thayer's story "One Woman" to the PCA, all of which were rejected. The MPAA/PCA file at the AMPAS Library adds the following information about the production: According to a July 1948 letter, the PCA opposed "Rosita's" characterization as a prostitute, ("and possibly Leona"), and would not approve the script. The PCA noted that "if Rosita's connnection with the various male characters were something other than that of a loose woman or professional prostitute, the basic story would be acceptable." In a later letter, the PCA advised that the producers "eliminate her address book and substitute in its place either a diary or a collection of letters" to avoid "the danger that the philosophy of this story might create sympathy for Rosita's immoral actions." The PCA also suggested that the producers "insert a voice for morality." Hollywood Reporter news items indicate that some scenes were shot on location in Chicago, IL.
