Peter B. Kyne wrote a series of short stories and novels featuring the character "Cappy Ricks," the first of which, Cappy Ricks; or The Subjugation of Matt Peasley, was published in New York in 1916. According to a Hollywood Reporter news item, Bruce Cabot was considered for the role of "Bill Peck." Hollywood Reporter news items also noted that Frank Shields was borrowed from Samuel Goldwyn and erroneously state that Walter Brennan was borrowed from M-G-M for this production.
