The working title of this film was The Goose Woman. Although the film was not viewed, the above credits were taken from a cutting continuity deposited with the copyright records. News items in Film Daily state that Samuel Ornitz was to adapt and then co-write the script with Marion Dix. His exact contribution to the project has not been determined. In one pre-production Film Daily news item, Del Andrews was announced as co-director with Harlan Thompson. It has not been determined whether Andrews worked on the film. Modern sources add Jane Darwell to the cast. Rex Beach's story was first filmed as The Goose Woman in 1925 by Universal. Clarence Brown directed Louise Dressler, Jack Pickford and Constance Bennett in that silent version (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1921-30; F2.2198).
