The film's working title was West of Tomorrow. Onscreen credits acknowledge the cooperation of the United States Air Force in the making of the film. According to a Hollywood Reporter news item, the picture had its world premiere on September 24, 1948 at a national convention of the Airforce Association, which was held at the Hotel Commodore in New York. Reviewers commented on the film's unusual, and economical, use of offscreen voices, heard on a radio intercom, to depict all of the battle sequences. Jungle Patrol marked the motion picture debut of actor Arthur Franz (1920-2006).
