Contemporary sources add the following information about the production: The production, which was to begin in mid-March 1946, was delayed when James Kern became sick after he was assigned to direct, thus delaying the completion of the final script. The film was to star Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, who were suspended by the studio for refusing the roles. Although one news item reports that Zachary Scott replaced Bogart, Bogart was replaced by star Ronald Reagan. According to a November 8, 1945 press release, Raoul Walsh was to direct the film. Other Hollywood Reporter news items note that Eleanor Parker was considered as a replacement for Bacall. According to a May 1946 press release, Rory Mallinson was assigned to a role, but did not appear in the final film. Some scenes were shot on location in Griffith Park in Los Angeles. The film's credits note that Stallion Road was "produced with the cooperation of the American Humane Association." Modern sources add that William Faulkner wrote a screen version of the Stephen Longstreet novel, which bore little resemblance to the novel and was not used for the film. Ronald Reagan, Alexis Smith and Zachary Scott reprised their roles in a October 4, 1948 Lux Radio Theatre broadcast.
