The title card reads: "Warner Bros. presents William A. Wellman's Good-Bye, My Lady." The onscreen credits for Laurindo Almeida and George Field read as follows: "Music composed and played by Laurindo Almeida-Guitar, A.S.C.A.P.; George Fields-Harmonica, A.S.C.A.P." During the film, an offscreen narrator conveys the passage of time. Portions of the film, among them the hunting sequences, were shot in Albany, GA, and also at the Samuel Goldwyn Studios, according to an August 1955 Hollywood Reporter news item. In his autobiography, Sam O'Steen stated that he served as assistant film editor for the film.
According to Warner Bros. production notes, upon completion of the film, Wellman gave the dog who played "Lady" to actor Brandon de Wilde, who portrayed "Skeeter." In his 1974 autobiography, Wellman expressed annoyance over the film's financial failure, especially considering that the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution awarded him a plaque proclaiming Good-Bye, My Lady "the Best Children's Picture of the Year 1956."
