Hollywood Reporter and Daily Variety reviews attribute the song "Lonely Rangeland" to Enright Busse. The Medico of Painted Springs was the first entry in Columbia's "Medico" series, which consisted of three films, all based on the "Medico" novels by James L. Rubel. Charles Starrett starred as Dr. Steven Monroe in all three and Lambert Hillyer directed. In the last two entries of the series, Cliff Edwards appeared as Monroe's sidekick "Bones Malloy." The last in the series was the 1941 film Prairie Stranger (see below).
