According to an article in the 21 February 1941 edition of The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros bought the film rights to the novel for $35,000 and intended this to be a vehicle for Bette Davis. Mary Astor was considered for the role of Evelyn, but Davis objected, thinking Astor was too old for the part. Astor was subsequently assigned to The Maltese Falcon (1941). Davis was eventually replaced by Barbara Stanwyck because she was tired of playing hard, bitter women - qualities she felt were too similar to her role in The Little Foxes (1941).
