The closing credits include the following written acknowledgment: "War Paint was photographed in its entirety in beautiful Death Valley National Monument, California, with the cooperation of the U.S. Department of the Interior and the National Park Service. Without their help, this picture would not have been possible." Hollywood Reporter production charts include Neville Brand in the cast, but he did not appear in the released film.
The pressbook for the film erroneously boasts that it was the first feature-length picture ever to be filmed in Death Valley, CA. According to news items, War Paint was the first production of Howard Koch's company, K-B Productions, Inc. According to correspondence in the MPAA/PCA Collection at the AMPAS Library, an early draft of the screenplay contained a mercy killing scene to which PCA Director Joseph I. Breen objected.
