The Carnergie Hall scene was shot in the Hammersmith Apollo, with about 300 extras.

A few scenes in alleyways include nightclub posters. At least one refers to BeBop, which was still experimental during the war years. In 1944, Minton's Playhouse in Harlem was probably the only New York City venue where it could be heard. The word BeBop went mainstream in fall 1945.
