The working titles of this film were The Gun and the Gavel, Six Guns and a Gavel and The Violent Land. Although Hollywood Reporter production charts indicate that the film, which was shot in Kanab, UT, was scheduled to be shot in color, it was released in black and white. The film was shot immediately after The Badge of Marshall Brennan and most of the actors and technicians worked on both films. While the screen credits state that the film was copyrighted by Gavel Inc., no copyright registration for the film has been located. According to a July 1957 Hollywood Reporter news item, Republic bought a partnership in the film as well as distributing it.
