An April 1950 Hollywood Reporter news item and Hollywood Reporter production charts indicate that Robert Parrish was in Mexico during production of The Brave Bulls, assisting in early editing, although Henry Batista and Donald Starling receive onscreen credit as the film's editors. Columbia borrowed Mel Ferrer from Howard Hughes's company for the production. Eight members of the cast were actual banderilleros and picadores and were credited onscreen as Members of the Association de Banderilleros y Picadores, Mexico D.F. As noted in the onscreen credits, the film was shot on location in and around Mexico City, including the famous bullfighting ring, The Plaza, and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. The Brave Bulls marked the American film debut of Czech-born actress Miroslava Stern, who was billed as Miroslava throughout her successful film career in Mexico.
