The working titles of the film were I Ride Alone and Yankee Gold. Although the film was exhibited in the 3-D format, the print viewed was in standard format. According to information in the file on the film in the MPAA/PCA Collection at the AMPAS Library, the script was originally rejected because of its "shocking violence...(and) acts of vicious brutality and gruesomeness." Producer Harry Joe Brown made multiple story eliminations in order to gain PCA script approval. For more information on Quantrill's Raiders, see the entry for the 1940 Republic film Dark Command in AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1931-40.
