- The Legion of Decency did not like the film because of its pro-Communist leanings. But instead of condemning the film, they used a "separate classification" for the film. That had previously been used on 1938's "Blockade" (a Spanish Civil War film which had the sympathy for the anti-Catholic and pro-Communist Loyalists) and 1953's "Martin Luther" (becuase the film portrayed the life of the man who split Christianity and was full of many inaccurate presentations of Church teachings).
- Mary Pickford was originally slated to make her comeback with this film but later dropped out of the project.
