Producer Mark Hellinger
's dislike for executive producer Hal B. Wallis
became even stronger after this film was released. Though the film was critically acclaimed and made money for Warners, print ads at the time mentioned Wallis as executive producer (though uncredited in the film), Jack L. Warner
in charge of production and Lewis Seiler
as director, but did not even mention Hellinger, who had received screen credit as producer. This was one of the contributing factors in Hellinger's shortly thereafter leaving Warners for 20th Century-Fox. (Source: "The Mark Hellinger Story" by Jim Bishop
