Production notes[edit]

The music in the film was composed by Hans J. Salter.

The Universal Studios backlot was used for the wagon ride scene.

The house facades used in the film were built on Universal's Stage 12. In 1950, two of these units were moved from Stage 12 and relocated to Universal's new Colonial Street. The Maxims' house would later be used for the television series The Munsters. The "Maxim House" was also used in the movie One Desire (1955), while the "Allison House" was used in the movie Harvey (1950). In 1964, Universal Studios tour guides called the sets the "Munster House" (Maxim home) and the "Harvey House" (Allison or Dowd Home). Portions of the "Harvey House" were also used for the films Psycho (1960) and The Ghost and Mr. Chicken (1966). Today, the sets are located on Universal's Wisteria Lane: the "Harvey House" is at 4349 Wisteria Lane, and the "Munster House" is at 4351 Wisteria Lane.
