In the opening credits, Don Castle is listed last in the cast as "Presenting Don Castle." The film opens with narration by "Mike," explaining that "Linda" is dead and that he wants one more look at "Estelle." In a closing voice-over narration, Mike states: "So that's the whole story. Linda's dead and Estelle is alive because of my blind murderous jealousy. Anyway, who'd want to look at a girl for the rest of his life and always be reminded of murder?" Hollywood Reporter news items include Ruth Robinson and Franklyn Farnum in the cast, but their appearance in the final film has not been confirmed. Hollywood Reporter also announced that after two and a half weeks of shooting, the picture's budget was increased by $100,000. This film marked Texas oilman and film and television mogul Jack Wrather, Jr.'s first effort as producer. His company, Jack Wrather Productions, produced six more films through 1958, two of which also starred Bonita Granville, who became Wrather's second wife and business partner. In 1956, Wrather purchased the popular CBS television series Lassie, which ran for twenty years.
