The working title of this film was Illegal Bride. Robert Carson's novel was serialized in Collier's (30 July-3 September 1949) prior to its pubilcation. It is possible that the novel was published previous to 1955, but no earlier publication date has been confirmed. Although the onscreen credits list Robert Libott and Frank Burt as screenplay writers, reviews also include Carson as a co-screenwriter. According to Hollywood Reporter news items, some scenes were shot on location at the Neil McCarthy estate in California. Modern sources credit Charles Maxwell as co-writer of the music score.
