La voce senza volto was shot at the Cinecittà Studios.[2] The film features Giovanni Manurita, a popular tenor who had a brief film career.[2] La voce senza volto would be his third last film.[2]


La voce senza volto was distributed theatrically in Italy by Juventus Film on January 5, 1939.[1] Film historian and critic Roberto Curti noted that the current prints of the film in Italy suffer from soundtrack damage, and feature voice work that was re-dubbed onto the film with contemporary dialogue.[2]
