The working title of this film was Highway to Hell. According to the film's spoken foreword, this story was dedicated to the "unsung heroes of the oil fields-the nitro shooters." A Hollywood Reporter production chart lists J. Robert Bren as a screenwriter with credited writer Sy Barlett, but his contribution to the final film has not been determined. This production was the first in which actor Vinton Haworth used the stage name Jack Arnold.
