The working title of this film was The Ghost Steps Out. The film boasts elaborate special effects, including ghosts passing through walls, driverless cars and floating objects. Although Hollywood Reporter production charts include Almira Sessions in the cast, she did not appear in the final film. Paramount loaned Marjorie Reynolds to Universal for her role in the film. The Time of Their Lives was the first Abbott and Costello film to be directed by Charles Barton, who would go on to helm eight of their movies. The character of "Emily" is a spoof on the "Mrs. Danbury" character from the 1940 film Rebecca (see entry above), who was played by Judith Anderson.
