The film had its world premiere in Norfolk and Richmond, VA on November 23, 1944. According to a news item in AEx, producer Sol Lesser bought the rights to Henry and Phoebe Ehprons' play for $50,000 as a vehicle for Cheryl Walker, Lon McCallister, Marjorie Riordan and William Terry, the young stars of his 1943 film Stage Door Canteen. Other news items add that William Wadsworth, who played the role of the doctor in the Broadway production of Three's a Family, and Charlotte Greenwood, who played the maiden aunt, were to reprise their stage roles for the film, but neither appeared in the released film. Although another Hollywood Reporter news item adds Edward Hyans to the cast, his appearance in the released film has not been confirmed. The picture received an Academy Award nomination in the Sound Recording category.
