The film begins with the following written foreword: "Old legends-strange tales-never die in the lonely swampland. Villages and hamlets lie remote and almost forgotten. Small ferryboats glide between the shores, and the ferryman is a very important person. Day and night he is at the command of his passengers. On his little barge ride the good and the evil; the friendly and the hostile; the superstitious and the enlightened; the living and-sometimes-the dead." Frank Wisbar's onscreen credit reads: "Screenplay and direction by Frank Wisbar." This film is a remake of Wisbar's 1936 German film Fahrmann Maria, which starred Sybille Schmitz and Aribert Mog. (In Germany, Wisbar's name was spelled Wysbar.)
