Contemporary news items add the following information about the production: Francis Rosenwald and Anthony Mann's story was first purchased by Jack Wrather Productions, to be released by Allied Artists. Don Castle was to star for the Wrather production. In December 1947, RKO purchased the story from Wrather and assigned Martin Rackin to write the script. Rackin's contribution to the final film has not been confirmed. In June 1948, Kent Smith was announced as the film's star. As part of Hughes's new production arrangement at RKO, the picture's shooting schedule was only sixteen days, ten to twelve days less than the norm for previous "B" films.
