The working title of this film was A Matter of Life and Death. Although Jack Elam's character name appears in the film itself as "Vern," reviews, CBCS and the copyright cutting continuity spell the name "Verne." According to contemporary news items, prior to selling his independent production to RKO head Howard Hughes, Benedict Bogeaus bought star MacDonald Carey's interest in the picture for $50,000. Modern sources indicate that United Artists was first set to distribute the film.
