Fort Massacre was the first release of The Mirisch Company, Inc., a production company founded by brothers Walter, Marvin and Harold Mirisch in September 1957. According to the film's pressbook, Fort Massacre was shot thirty miles north of Gallup, NM, with twenty local Navajo Indians cast as Apaches. Actor George N. Neise is incorrectly listed as George W. Neise in the end credits. Tom M'so, a Navajo from Ramah, New Mexico, who plays a "bad" Indian in the film, is quoted in the pressbook as enjoying the experience: "As long as Hollywood doesn't show the Indian as a coward, we do not mind....And we don't feel bad about movies in which the White Men are shown stealing our land and putting us on reservations."
