The film's working title was The Travelers. It was shot on location in the Alabama Hills region of Lone Pine, CA and in the Mojave Desert. This film was the first western in which Kirk Douglas appeared. As critic Bosley Crowther noted in his review of the film in the New York Times, "Like initiation into a fraternity, it seems that every young male star must do at least one performance in a western."
