Hal Wallis originally rejected Sheridan Gibney's script. Wallis wanted the movie to be a college romance. The star, Paul Muni, had script control in his contract, so the actor wrote across the top of the screenplay, "I approve this script as written." Warner Bros. had to film Gibney's original script, which went on to win an Oscar. From "Film Crazy" by Patrick McGilligan, St. Martin's Press, 1983; and "Actor: The Life & Times of Paul Muni" by Jerome Lawrence, 1974.
