This film's working title was Night Before. According to a Hollywood Reporter news item, Paramount originally planned to make a picture under the title The Well Groomed Bride in 1942, with Joseph Sistrom assigned as associate producer. Manny Seff and George Beck were said to be writing the screen story and Melvyn Frank and Norman Panama were to write the screen adaptation. It is unlikely that the work of any of the above writers were reflected in the 1945 picture of the same title. It was the last film producer Fred Kohlmar made for Paramount before moving to Twentieth Century-Fox. The film also marked the return to the screen, after a two and a half year absence, of Olivia De Havilland, who had successfully sued Warner Bros. for release from her contract (see Devotion above).
