According to a February 1946 Los Angeles Examiner news item, this was originally to be a Paramount production starring Dorothy Larmour and Stirling Hayden. Letters contained in the MPAA/PCA file for the film at the AMPAS Library indicate that the PCA objected to the premise of the Broadway play on which the film was based because "it is a story of adultery and illicit sex without the proper compensating moral values...the story relates in detail the sins of a woman...which are unacceptable under the provision of the Code." To circumvent some of the PCA's objections, the status of "George," a married man in the play, was changed to be a single man who is engaged to a "respectable" woman. In 1950, according to a Los Angeles Daily News item, Bank of America sued Columbia Pictures and Benedict Bogeaus Productions for failing to repay $324,000 that the bank had loaned them for this production. The bank eventually foreclosed on its loan, and in 1953, reissued the picture through Favorite Films Attractions, a privately owned film exchange.
