The working title of this film was Wings over San Antonio. It was listed in a Hollywood Reporter production chart on June 8, 1936 and, according to a billing sheet for the picture contained in the file on the film in the MPAA/PCA Collection at the AMPAS Library, it was copyrighted in 1936 by Kier Phillips. It is not contained in the copyright register, however, and no reviews have been located prior to May 1938. Two letters in the PCA file, both dated June 1937, indicate that Victory Pictures intended to release the film, however, reviews variously listed the picture as an Ace Pictures or Treo Exchange release. The above summary and credits are based primarily on information in the PCA file. Although Paul Willet is credited with the screenplay on the Hollywood Reporter chart, reviews and the billing sheet in the PCA file credit original story and screenplay to Harry Forbes and do not mention Willet. John Eberts and Loretta King are included in the cast in the Hollywood Reporter chart, however, their participation in the released film has not been confirmed.
