This film is adapted from Joseph Kanon's 2001 novel of the same name.
This entire film was shot as though it had been made in 1945. Only studio back lots, sets and local Los Angeles locations were used. No radio microphones were used, the film was lit with only incandescent lights and period lenses were used on the cameras. The actors were directed to perform in a presentational, stage style. The only allowance was the inclusion of nudity, violence and cursing which would have been forbidden by the Production Code.
The film's prints are in 1.85:1 with black bars on the sides, so that the film could be in the 1.66:1 aspect ratio, which modern theaters are not equipped to handle, .
