RKO borrowed Tim Holt from Walter Wanger's studio for this film. Some reviewers commented on the similarity between Harry Carey's character and the real-life Judge Roy Bean (1825?-1903), a colorful American frontiersman who established himself as the unofficial "law west of the Pecos." Reviewers also compared Tim Holt's character to Billy the Kid, Jean Rouverol's to Calamity Jane, and the "McQuinn brothers" to Billy and Ike Clanton. These comparisons, however, are not supported strongly by the film's story. Modern sources add Kermit Maynard and Robert Kortman to the cast.
