The working title of this film was The Falcon Steps Out. A Hollywood Reporter production chart adds Willie Fung and Edward Dunn to the cast and credits Jerry Cady with original screenplay, but their participation in the final film has not been confirmed. This was Howard Benedict's last production for RKO before moving to Universal. For additional information about the series, consult the Series Index and for The Gay Falcon. The Raymond Chandler novel also served as the basis for the 1944 RKO film Murder My Sweet. The 1974 Avco Embassy film Farewell My Lovely, starring Robert Mitchum and Charlotte Rampling and directed by Dick Richards, was also based on the Chandler novel.
