The film's closing credits include the following dedication: "This picture is dedicated to the members of the Women's Institutes who throughout this war have revived the ancient crafts of the villages in the service of the community, who have given freely of their time and knowledge and who by the work of their hands and without gains to themselves have greatly increased their country's resources." The picture's opening credits were unusual for the time in that they were momentarily interrupted by the opening scene. The character "Eleanor Roosevelt" is not actually seen in the picture. The film, which was released in Great Britain in 1945, was made by RKO's British production unit and was shot at D & P Studios in London. According to the Monthly Film Bulletin, the running time of British release prints was 80 minutes or 7,173 feet, suggesting that considerable footage was deleted for the American release. Modern sources note that the picture lost $232,000 in its American release.
