Exteriors for the film were shot in Boston, Marblehead, Wakefield and Salem, MA, according to publicity for the film. The author of the best-selling novel, Eileen Bassing, formerly lived in Marblehead, MA, the basis for the fictional "Cape Marble" of the book and film. Additional filming took place in the Crystal Room of the Beverly Hills Hotel, which was used for the hotel in Boston, and at Point Sequit on the coast at Malibu for the scenes by the lobster traps. Although her appearance in the film has not been confirmed, a February 1958 Hollywood Reporter news item adds Gladys Roach to the cast.
