Along with Shane (1953), Sabrina (1954), The Country Girl (1954), Elephant Walk (1954), The Bridges at Toko-Ri (1954), Casanova's Big Night (1954), About Mrs. Leslie (1954), The Naked Jungle (1954), 3 Ring Circus (1954), Red Garters (1954) and Rear Window (1954), this was one of several Paramount pictures released in a generic widescreen aspect ratio just prior to the studio's implementation of the vastly superior VistaVision, which would be ushered in October of the same year with White Christmas (1954). All of these films were composed with extraneous footage at the top and bottom of the frame so they could be matted for rectangular projection. As of 2021, only Knock on Wood (1954), Rear Window (1954), Sabrina (1954) and Shane (1953) have been exhibited in their intended widescreen format, the first three on home video, the last only on Turner Classic Movies, along with MGM's The Long, Long Trailer (1954).
