According to a Hollywood Reporter news item, this film was shot on location in Kernville, CA. The Foreword states that "the glory of upright, stalwart, responsible manhood," is attained only through good boyhood, and explains that the Boy Scouts were started by an Englishman. The film opens with a newsreel of the National Scout Jamboree in Washington, D.C., where boys from across the United States gather at a conference meant "to stimulate becoming a better man." There are twelve noble rules of scout law, and the scout oath reads, "to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight." The picture is dedicated "to Boy Scouts of the world...to those worthy lads." Although the Variety review remarks that at the film's final fadeout, it was still unclear whether Tex was a government agent or a roving cowboy, the viewed print made it clear that Tex was a G-man, but did not show him revealing his identity to any of the other characters in the film.
