A Spanish-language version, La Voluntad del Muerto, starring Lupita Tovar and directed by George Melford, was filmed by Universal Pictures at night on the same sets used for The Cat Creeps during the day.
In the documentary The Young and the Dead, the husband of the lead actress Helen Twelvetrees creates a video tribute due to her illness and shows part of her memorial service. He states that he became her agent during the filming of the movie and married her shortly after filming ended. Elizabeth Patterson later reprised her role of Susan in the 1939 remake, The Cat and the Canary.
