The working titles of this film were Flame of Timberline and Vermilion O'Toole. According to a March 1952 Los Angeles Times article, Universal originally considered Jeff Chandler for the role of "Will Hall." An October 1952 Hollywood Reporter news item adds Mike McHale to the cast, but his appearance in the final film has not been confirmed. Take Me to Town marked the final film of long-time Universal dance director Hal Belfer before his resignation. Los Angeles Times reported in August 1959 that producer Ross Hunter wanted to buy the rights to the film's story from Universal in order to revise it as a stage musical. According to the article, Hunter planned to star Ann Sheridan in the theatrical production in the fall of 1960. No additional information about the production has been found. Modern sources add Bernard Herzbrun (Art Director) to the crew credits.
