The working title of the film was Branded Woman. Although a May 1946 Warner Bros. news release credits Catherine Turney with a screen treatment of the Margaret Echard novel, the extent of Turney's contribution to the final film has not been determined. Portions of the film were shot on location in Victorville, CA, according to February 1950 Hollywood Reporter news items and the Variety review. Scenes at the "Trevelyan" ranch were filmed at director King Vidor's ranch at Paso Robles, California, according to a modern source. On June 9, 1955, Kathryn Givney reprised her role in a Lux Radio Theatre production of Lightning Strikes Twice, co-starring Janet Blair and Dan O'Herlihy.
