The opening title cards of this film read: "A Leonard Goldstein Production George Montgomery in Zane Grey's Robbers' Roost." Grey's novel was serialized in Collier's (11 October-27 December 1930). According to a June 16, 1953 Hollywood Reporter news item, writer-director Sidney Salkow originally purchased the rights to Grey's novel from his son, Romer Grey, and intended to produce the picture independently, in association with Romer. A November 16, 1954 Hollywood Reporter news item include Charles Rooner and Fernando Wagner in the cast, but their appearance in the completed film has not been confirmed. Hollywood Reporter news items noted that the picture was shot on location in Durango, Mexico. Grey's novel was also used as the basis for the 1933 Fox Film Corp. release Robbers' Roost, which was directed by Louis King and starred George O'Brien and Maureen O'Sullivan (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1931-40).
