According to a July 12, 1945 Los Angeles Examiner news item, King Bros. Productions, Inc. purchased Steve Fisher's original screen story, "Hunted," and intended to produce it on a budget of $400,000 with Joel McCrea as the star. An April 1947 Variety news item indicated that Allied Artists had purchased the property from the King brothers for $75,000. Although copyright registration documents credit Paul Guilfoyle with the role of "Hollis Smith," Larry Blake is credited with the role in numerous other sources. Actor J. Farrell MacDonald appears in an early Hollywood Reporter production chart cast list but his appearance in the released film has not been confirmed.
