The title card on the viewed print reads: "The David Lewis Production of Erich Maria Remarque's The Other Love." The title of Erich Maria Remarque's unpublished story, which the Variety review noted was semi-autobiographical, was "Beyond." Hollywood Reporter news items add the following information about the production: Robert Stack was first cast as "Paul Clermont" and played the role during the first month of filming. When he became ill with the flu, he was replaced by Richard Conte. Two weeks later, Barbara Stanwyck also became ill, and production was shut down for two weeks. After filming ended, a cutting room fire destroyed 19,000 feet of exposed footage from this and another United Artist's production, Arch of Triumph . Hollywood Reporter news items add Helene Nielsen, Billy Wilkerson, Gertrude Astor, Stuart Holmes, Wyndham Standing, Barry Norton, Jean Acker, Franklyn Farnum, Wilbur Mack, Aloha Wray, Helene Boone, Jean "Babe" London, Blandine Ebinger, Joan Barton, The Chanticleer Singers and The Cajuns to the cast, but their appearance in the final film has not been confirmed.
According to a Hollywood Reporter news item, footage for the film was shot in Switzerland and on the French Riviera. According to a Motion Picture Herald news item, following a preview screening of the film, David Niven re-recorded eight scenes using British enunciations for screening in Great Britain. As reported in Daily Variety, $4,000 in grosses from the London premiere were donated to the Lord Mayor's National Flood Disaster Fund. Although the Variety review claims that Barbara Stanwyck's character dies, she appears to be breathing at the end of the film. Barbara Stanwyck reprised her role for a June 16, 1947 Lux Radio Theatre broadcast, co-starring George Brent.
