The working title of this film was Take Five from Five. According to a October 4, 1957 Daily Variety news item, production company Jewell Enterprises assigned Paul Henreid to direct the film before they had secured a distributor. As noted in a October 22, 1957 Hollywood Reporter article, Universal acquired the distribution rights later that month. Although a November 25, 1957 Hollywood Reporter news item adds Roy Gordon to the cast, he was not in the released film. Daily Variety reported in July 1965 that Universal bought the full rights to Girls on the Loose and Live Fast, Die Young, also directed by Henried and produced by Harry Rybnick and Richard Kay (see below).
