The working title for this film was The Four Seasons, which is also the name of the opening title song. A prologue following the opening credits describes the California gold rush in the mid-1800s, during which thousands of Americans traveled west in search of a quick fortune, but their greediness turned them "into animals." Voice-over narration provided by Denver Pyle as the character "Bert Killian" opens the film by recounting his and "Tracy Powell's" journey west and their divergent paths as they built a future in California.
       A October 10, 1955 Hollywood Reporter article adds Clarence Chase to the cast, however, his appearance in the released film has not been confirmed. A modern source also adds Paul E. Burns to the cast. A September 30, 1955 Hollywood Reporter production chart for the film noted that the production was being shot at Republic Studios.
