Credits were obtained from copyright records and reviews. "Wesley's" child "Joseph" was played by Juano Hernandez' real-life son, Juan. News items in Hollywood Reporter add the following information about the production: Jack Webb was tested for the second lead. Scenes were shot on location at Balboa and Newport Beach, CA, and at Santa Anita racetrack in Arcadia, CA. Ernest Hemingway's novel also served as the inspiration for Warner Bros. 1945 film To Have and Have Not (see below) and the 1958 United Artists film The Gun Runners, directed by Don Siegel and starring Audie Murphy.
