The working title of this film was Diary of the Santa Fe. According to a news item in Hollywood Reporter, it was planned as a follow-up to the success of Dodge City which also starred Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland. Other news items in Hollywood Reporter note that this picture was part of a trend towards big-budget big-name Westerns. The trend was spurred by the success of Fox's 1939 film Jesse James and the Warner Bros. 1939 film Dodge City and their 1940 film Virginia City. A news item in Hollywood Reporter adds that the film was shot on location around Santa Fe, NM.
