May and June 1960 Hollywood Reporter news items add Maxine Doviate, Dixie Carson, Buck Bailey, Bert Hicks, Beth Belden, Clint Sharp, Buck Bucko, Richard Johnstone, Henry Isabell, John Barton, Jenny May Ellis, Charles Morton and Fred Weller to the cast, but their appearance in the film has not been confirmed. According to Hollywood Reporter news items, portions of the film were shot on location in Topanga Canyon, CA.

The song May have been used for exploitation purposes only.
