As Karl Malden's police sergeant character leaves his desk, he calls for a colleague named "Sekulovich" to toss him his hat. Malden's birth name is, in fact, Sekulovich.
The original script was written in 1944 and sat on the shelf at Warner Brothers until 1963 when at long last it was finally in production.

This was Jean Hagen's final film before her death on August 29, 1977 at the age of 54.
Bette Davis declined a role in 4 for Texas (1963) to do this film.
This was the third time that the director Paul Henreid worked with Bette Davis. He acted in two other films alongside her: Now, Voyager (1942) and Deception (1946).
For Bette Davis, this film was a reunion not only with Paul Henreid but also George Chandler; they were both contract players at Warners in the 1930s. This was their first picture together since Front Page Woman (1935) 29 years earlier.
