Although an October 1951 Hollywood Reporter news item stated that the picture would be filmed at the Motion Picture Center Studio, it was actually shot at the RKO Path Studio. The same article named Mara Lynn as George Raft's co-star. A January 1952 Hollywood Reporter production chart mistakenly referred to the production company as "Bernie Luber Productions" instead of "Encore Productions." Hollywood Reporter news items add Barbara Woodell, William Tannen and Elena Da Vinci to the cast, but their appearance in the final film has not been confirmed. In October 1953, Hollywood Reporter reported that director Seymour Friedman sued Lippert, Bernard Luber, Lippert Productions, Lippert Pictures and Encore Productions for the $5,000 in salary still owed to him and the five percent in profits from Loan Shark. The outcome of the suit is not known.
