The movie initially was called "Born to Be Bad" with Lew Ayres again starring as Dr.Kildare. After principal shooting had been completed, Ayres announced he was a conscientious objector to world war II in which America was then involved. Fearing adverse publicity, MGM scrapped his footage, replaced him with 'Philip Dorn (I)', and changed the title.
Two cast members in studio records/casting call lists did not appear or were not identifiable in the movie. These were (with their character names): Buddy Messinger (Messenger boy) and George Reed (Conover). In addition, Mitchell Lewis and Robert Emmett Keane were mentioned in news items as cast members, but they also did not appear in the movie.
This film was first shown in Philadelphia Saturday 13 April 1957 on WFIL (Channel 6) and in New York City Monday 22 April 1957 on WCBS (Channel 2) but no record of its telecast in Los Angeles can be found prior to 2 February 1961 on KTTV (Channel 11).
