Phantom Lady marked the first producing credit for Joan Harrison, formerly a screenwriter on several films for director Alfred Hitchcock. Harrison later went on to produce Hitchcock's television series, Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Contemporary sources indicate that Dave Coleman dubbed Elisha Cook's erotic drum solo. A Hollywood Reporter news item reveals that songwriters Eddie Cherkose and Jacques Press filed suit against Universal for $20,000 in July 1944 for not giving them screen credit for their song "Chick-ee-Chick," which was sung in the film by Aurora. The disposition of the suit has not been determined. On March 27, 1944, Ella Raines and Alan Curtis recreated their roles as "Carol" and "Scott," with Brian Aherne taking the role of "Jack" on a Lux Radio Theatre broadcast of Phantom Lady.
