The working title of this film was Beyond the Sunset. The order of the end credits differs slightly from the opening cast credits. In the end credits, King Donovan's character name is misspelled as "Munoe." The following written statement appears at the end of the opening credits: "New Mexico Territory 1865. The war between the states is in its last stages. A few remaining Confederate sympathizers called 'Copperheads' are putting up a secret last ditch fight. Renegades, outlaws, deserters from both armies pillage and raid. It is a period of burned ranches and looted wagon trains, of ambush and murder, with no man in the territory safe from the rising tide of violence."
Hollywood Reporter news items add Jack Kenney, George Holt, Anthony Smith, Willie Bloom, Dick Carlen, Polly Burson, Frank Cordell, Frosty Royce, Beau Anderson, Jack Fitzpatrick and John Roy to the cast, but the appearance of these actors in the final film has not been confirmed. Location filming took place in Sedona, AZ, according to news items. According to a modern source, footage from the 1937 Paramount film Wells Fargo (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1931-40) was used in The Redhead and the Cowboy.
