In late August 1942, RKO decided to delay the release of the movie because critics panned it in press previews. By that time, Orson Welles
' contract was terminated by a new studio head. As part of the settlement, Welles agreed to recut the last reel and film additional scenes. He added the voice-over by Joseph Cotten
at the beginning and end of the movie, and designed the pre-credit sequence. See more
