Working titles of this film included City of the Angels and Man with a Gun. According to information contained in the copyright record of the film, Lina Romay's father was the Mexican vice-consul in Los Angeles at the time of the picture's production. The real Joaquin Murieta, whose name is spelled "Murietta" in reviews, was a famous bandit who was born in Mexico around 1830. Murieta came to California in 1849, and was killed by Rangers serving under Capt. Harry S. Love in 1853. This film bears little resemblance to the life of the real Murieta.
