Onscreen credits note that the musical score was "based on N. Rimsky-Korsakov's 'Song of India.'" March and April 1948 Hollywood Reporter news items note that the picture, which was to be distributed through Universal-International, was originally scheduled to be shot in Cinecolor, Harry Cushing was to be the producer and Barbara Bushman was to be tested for a role. Bushman's appearance in the completed film has not been confirmed, however. The news items also report that the plans for the picture called for "extensive location shooting" at Sherwood Lake, CA. Gail Russell was borrowed from Paramount Studios for the production. According to a May 1948 Hollywood Reporter news item, Columbia agreed to distribute the film as part of a one-picture distribution deal with Albert Rogell's independent production company, Gibralter Pictures, but Gibralter is not listed on screen or in reviews.
