Warner Brothers wanted to put Howard in the film but replace Bogart with Edward G. Robinson. Howard insisted on Bogart, going as far as sending a telegram to the studio saying if there was no Bogart, there was no Howard. Bogart would later name his second child with Lauren Bacall Leslie, in honor of Howard, the man who gave him his first big break.
