Trivia

Paul Newman was originally scheduled to play Nick Adams in this TV play, opposite James Dean as "The Battler". Dean's death in a car crash on September 30, 1955, led to a hasty re-arranging of the casting. The play went out live some 19 days later, giving Newman some of the best notices of his career to that time.
