Actress Eily Malyon's name is spelled "Ely Malyon" in the onscreen credits. According to Daily Variety, this was Milton H. Feld's first film as an associate producer under Sol M. Wurtzel. Reviews note that the case in the film was based on a recent trial in West Virginia of a mountain girl for the shooting death of her father while she was defending herself from a brutal beating over an innocent rendezvous with a boy. According to Daily Variety, the film was shooting for a week until Michael Whalen was chosen as the male lead. Victor Kilian is listed as a cast member in Hollywood Reporter production charts, but his participation in the final film has not been confirmed.
