NOTES

powered by AFI

The working title of the film was The Queen's African Rifles. Although the film was released in color, the print viewed was in black and white. A short, written foreword establishes that the story begins in spring, 1914, but the plot reveals that the action began days before the start of World War I, in August 1914. According to a Hollywood Reporter news item, The Royal African Rifles was the first production of AFA, Inc. (also known as Associated Film Artists, Inc), a company owned by actor Louis Hayward. The news item went on to state that it was also the first film under Hayward's new contract with Allied Artists with whom he would produce and star in two films a year. No other AFA, Inc. films were made and Hayward made no additional pictures for Allied Artists. Although actor Woody Strode is included in the cast list in reviews and copyright records, he was not in the viewed print, which May have been slightly incomplete.
