This film's original story came from a 1954 episode of The United States Steel Hour titled "Fearful Decision".
Alec Baldwin was Ron Howard's first choice for the role of Jimmy Shaker, but he turned it down due to the sinister nature of the character, as well as the film's theme of endangering a child.
Mel Gibson needed an emergency appendectomy during filming, which delayed production by a few days.
