Trivia

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.

Competent New York fairy story full of sweetness and light...

In this comedy-drama directed by Lewis Seiler, Bogart was a fugitive killer who hid out in a rundown boarding house harboring a collection of talented amateur performers and maternally oriented older women…

Bogart convinces them to convert the place into a night club and on opening night he is caught by the police, clearing an innocent man (Jeffrey Lynn) of suspicion in the murder he had actually committed…

Bogart was evidently having a good time as he delivered such lines as: "I hate mothers: all this silver threads among the gold stuff!" and had a very funny scene where he is "mothered" by Una O'Connor and Jessie Busley… However, The New York Times' critic, B. R. Crisler, summed up the film correct1y when he said that "It All Came True went from simple to simple-minded."
