According to a Hollywood Reporter news item, David Buttolph collaborated on the music score with Gerard Carbonara, and Adrian Scott contributed to the screenplay, but their contributions to the final film have not been confirmed. A Hollywood Reporter news item also reported that Montie Montana, Jr. was tested for a role, and that Frances Farmer was considered for the female lead. However, the reference to Frances Farmer was probably a mistaken reference to Frances Gifford, who stars in the film. Some scenes were filmed on location in Kernville, CA. In 1942, Paramount sold the distribution rights to this film as part of a package deal with United Artists.
