- Nancy: Jacqueline, you've spoken so often of ending it all I can't understand why this should be so difficult for you. You have only to drink a little. Esther Redi, Jacqueline's Partner: Yes, Jacqueline. You were always talking suicide; ending your life when you wanted to. Jacqueline Gibson: Yes, when *I* wanted to.
Mary Gibson: I feel like an idiot fainting in a stranger's office.
Mary Gibson: He was a kind little man in his way. I made him go down that hall into the darkness. I made him do it.
Police Officer Danny, Bureau Clerk: I tell you young lady. When a thing likes this comes up you got to go to the police. What do you think people pay taxes for? It ain't just to keep us chasing after crooks and regulating traffic. We're suppose to help everybody. Now, you got to go to the police about your sister, Miss.
Gregory Ward: No, that room made her happy in some strange way I couldn't understand. She lived in a world of her own fancy. She didn't always tell the truth. In fact, I'm afraid she didn't know what the truth was.
- The original story for the film (outlined by DeWitt Bodeen) was to be about an orphaned heroine caught in a web of murder against a background of the Signal Hills oil wells. If she didn't find out the killer's identity in time, she would become his seventh victim. Producer Val Lewton wanted the story to go in a different direction and called in a second writer to help reshape it.
The staircase seen at the beginning of the film is the same one used in Orson Welles' The Magnificent Ambersons (1942).
Erford Gage, who played the poet Jason Hoag, enlisted in the U.S. Army in August 1943 (around the time this film was released) and was killed in action in the Phillipines in March 1945.
Kim Hunter film debut.
