This film's earliest documented telecast took place in Minneapolis Monday 11 February 1957 on KMGM (Channel 9); it first aired in San Antonio 9 April 1957 on WOAI (Channel 4), in Lubbock TX 10 June 1957 on KCBD (Channel 11), in Miami 31 July 1957 on WCKT (Channel 7), in Albany 30 December 1957 on WTEN (Channel 10), in Portland OR 24 January 1958 on KGW (Channel 8), in Honolulu 25 January 1958 on KHVH (Channel 13), in Philadelphia 25 March 1958 on WFIL (Channel 6), in Cleveland 29 April 1958 on KYW (Channel 3), in Kalamazoo 7 June 1957 on WKZO (Channel 3), and in Tucson 21 October 1958 on KVOA (Channel 4). With an uninviting title, and a relatively forgotten cast, as well as the usual pre-code aspects of the story, major market sponsors showed little interest in this one, and so it was only occasionally taken off the shelf, and, even then, in the less predominant locations. In more recent years a new generation of vintage film enthusiasts have "discovered" Lee Tracy, and its long unseen hidden pre-code delights, so it's since become a welcome occasional flyer on cable TV on Turner Classic Movies.
