- Arthur Miller (I) revised the script so that more emphasis was given to his wife, Marilyn Monroe. Gregory Peck, originally cast opposite Monroe, left the project, unhappy about the way his role and been diminished. He said the script was "now about as funny as pushing Grandma down the stairs in a wheelchair."
- Cary Grant, Charlton Heston, Rock Hudson, 'Stewart, James' , and Yul Brynner all turned down the male lead. Yves Montand was cast after starring in Sorcieres de Salem, Les (1957), based on a play also written by Miller.
