A narration, spoken by Wild Bill Elliott as his character, "Sam Nelson," is provided intermittently throughout the film. Some reviews commented that the narration was similar in style to Dragnet. A studio production sheet of December 15, 1953, lists Melville Shyer as production manager and Fred Collings as assistant director, although Shyer is listed as the assistant director in the onscreen credits. A modern source adds Stanley Price and Jack O'Shea to the cast.
