This film was shot for the most part in Algeciras, Granada, Cadiz, Malaga and Seville in Spain, and on the island of Ponta Delgada in the Azores. Because of the refusal of Spanish authorities to allow fight scenes to be filmed, a set of a Spanish village was constructed at Larchmont, NY, where these scenes were shot. Scenes were also shot in a Harlem studio. In an introductory title, George B. Seitz acknowledged his indebtedness to the kingdom of Spain, and his gratitude to the citizens of Algeciras, Granada and Seville for their cooperation and hospitality. Contemporary sources state that this was the first feature film of Seitz, who earlier directed and acted in serials.
