The title comes from an incident that took place during the 1948 Presidential election campaign. Whilst in Harrisburg, Illinoismarker, Truman delivered a speech attacking the Republican. During the speech a supporter yelled out "Give 'em Hell, Harry!". Truman replied, "I don't give them Hell. I just tell the truth about them and they think it's Hell." Subsequently, "Give 'em Hell, Harry!" became a lifetime slogan for Truman supporters.

The movie was videotaped on the stage of the Moore Theatermarker in Seattle, Washingtonmarker, using a live editing process called Theatrovision. James Whitmore was nominated for Best Actor by both the Academy Awards and the Golden Globes. It is only the third film to have its entire credited cast (Whitmore) nominated for an Academy Award, the first two being Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf in 1966 and Sleuth in 1972.[24859]
