The script was first offered to Stanley Kramer, a producer acclaimed for his films with a social conscience, including Home of the Brave , High Noon , and The Defiant Ones . Kramer offered the role of Alicia Hull to Hollywood legend Mary Pickford, who was looking to make a comeback. However, Pickford was quickly talked out of doing the film by gossip columnist Hedda Hopper, an arch conservative and fervent anti-communist who warned Pickford that the film was pro-Red.

How about helping out an old friend?
Your not my friend!
You're not anybody's friend! They kicked you out! You don't belong here. They found out about you! You want to destroy us! Your like all the rest of them! They found out what you were doing! You don't belong here! Your not the librarian anymore. Your a communist! A communist! A communist! A communist!
