Trivia

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.
