This film opens with the following written foreword: "This is a story of the 1870s...in the New Mexico territory...when men created kingdoms out of land and cattle...and ruled their empires like feudal lords. Such a man was T. C. Jeffords...who wrote this flaming page in the history of the great Southwest." The Furies marked actor Walter Huston's final film appearance. He died on April 12, 1950. The film was shot on location in Tucson, AZ. Cinematographer Victor Milner received an Academy Award nomination for his work on the picture.
