Trivia

This movie was shot on a specially constructed set that took fifty men two months to build, and cost somewhere between seventy-five thousand dollars and one hundred thousand dollars. In order to get the scale right, the soundstage floor had to be removed so the courtyard could be built in a former storage space in the basement. Therefore, Stewart's apartment, which appears to be on the second floor, was actually at street level. The set included thirty-one apartments, of which twelve were fully furnished. The whole thing became a marvel that visitors to the studio were eager to see, and it was featured in magazine spreads while shooting was still in progress.
