Notes

According to information in its file in the MPAA/PCA Collection at the AMPAS Library, in April 1949, producer-actor John Calvert submitted a script for the film under the title Windswept. Although the Motion Picture Almanac listed a national release date of July 15, 1953, this was most likely an error as the film played in New York, Los Angeles and elsewhere in July and August 1952.
