Sidney Harmon's and Philip Yordan's onscreen credit reads "Written and Produced by Sidney Harmon and Philip Yordan." Offscreen narration by Robert Bice is heard intermittently throughout the film. Hollywood Reporter production charts incorrectly list film editor Marjorie Fowler as the picture's art director. Man Crazy was produced independently by Security Pictures, Inc., Harmon and Yordan's company, and then purchased for distribution by Twentieth Century-Fox in October 1953. A March 15, 1953 New York Times article reported that the picture had been shot "on location in and around Hollywood" on "a modest budget" of approximately $200,000. Man Crazy marked the first time that actor Neville Brand received top billing in a feature film.
