The film opens with the following written prologue: "As the 17th century neared its close, Scotland was still plagued by the bitter wars between the clans. And in all the Highlands, no feud was so deeply rooted as the one between the MacArdens and the Glowans." According to a Hollywood Reporter news item, Columbia constructed a full-scale replica of a Scottish castle at the Ray Corrigan Ranch in Simi Valley, CA to lend authenticity to the picture. A studio publicity story contained in the AMPAS Library files adds that locations were filmed at Mammoth Lakes, CA.
