A 17 May 1948 news item in Hollywood Reporter indicated that the production of this film was delayed due to John Wayne's commitment on 3 Godfathers. On July 14, 1948, the same publication reported that production of Wake of the Red Witch, which was scheduled to take seventy days, would be the longest in Republic's history. The actual production, which lasted from mid-July to late October 1948, took considerably longer. According to a August 24, 1948 Hollywood Reporter news item, underwater dolly shots, which were taken from two separate camera pits, each accommodating a full crew, were the first of their kind. "Batjac," the name of the trading company in the film, was the name adopted by Wayne for his company Batjac Productions, Inc. formed in 1951.
