The working titles of this film were As It Was Before and As Before, Better than Before. According to Hollywood Reporter, Universal purchased the rights to the Luigi Pirandello play as a starring vehicle for actor Charles Boyer. In April 1944, Universal begin negotiations with David O. Selznick to borrow actress Ingrid Bergman for a planned Bruce Manning production to star Boyer and Bergman. New York Times reported in July 1945 that Universal later attempted to sell the film rights to the novel to M-G-M for $250,000, but the deal failed due to a European rights problem. H. J. Salter's musical score for this film was nominated for an Academy Award in 1945, but lost to Miklos Rozsa's work on David O. Selznick production Spellbound (see entry above). Rita Hayworth and Charles Korvin starred in a Lux Radio Theatre production of This Love of Ours on February 4, 1946. The Luigi Pirandello play was filmed again by Universal in 1956 as Never Say Goodbye, starring Rock Hudson and Cornell Borchers and directed by Jerry Hopper.
