- The original screenwriters, the husband and wife team of 让·胡维罗尔 and 雨果·巴特勒, did not receive screen credit, as they were blacklisted at the time of production. 杰克·叶夫尼 received credit instead.
- 琼·克劳馥 was very pleased with the way the film turned out, saying "Everything clicked on 怨妇悲秋 (1956). The cast was perfect, the script was good, and I think Bob handled everything well. I really think Cliff did a stupendous job; another actor might have been spitting out his lines and chewing the scenery but he avoided that trap. I think the movie on a whole was a lot better than some of the romantic movies I did in the past, but somehow it just never became better known. It was eclipsed by the picture I did with Bette Davis." ("Bob" refers to director 罗伯特·奥尔德里奇, "Cliff" is her leading man 克里夫·罗伯逊 and the picture she did with 贝蒂·戴维斯 was What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962))
- In an interview for a much later documentary on 琼·克劳馥, 克里夫·罗伯逊 recounts his first meeting with her, at her house. Already somewhat intimidated by working with the legendary Crawford, he is let in, then hears her call from poolside, where she's sunning, "Come on out, dear boy. We've been waiting for you." Robertson has nothing but admiration for Crawford's talent and incredible technical disciple. At one point, Director Robert Aldrich wanted Crawford to cry, but only slightly. A tear or two. "Which eye?" Robertson recalls Crawford asking. Then repeats the anecdote, amazed, "'Which EYE?'"
