The film begins with the following written foreword: "The prison scenes in this film were photographed in the state penitentiary at Carson City, Nevada. This is the first time in the history of this institution that a motion picture camera has been permitted within its walls. For this privilege we gratefully acknowledge the cooperation and assistance of his excellency, Vail Pittman, governor of Nevada, Richard H. Sheehy, warden of the Nevada State Penitentiary and the inmates-whose participation made this film possible."
