Trivia:

Although Dmytryk's films for RKO in the 1940s were very profitable and elicited much favorable comment, he was generally treated like a B director by his home studio. The only film for which he received a Best Director Oscar nomination - RKO's "Crossfire" (1947) - was shot in 20 days on a paltry budget of $250,000. See more »
