The film's opening credits show a man taking a book from a shelf, the cover of which lists the title and author, Stewart Edward White. The acting and production credits are revealed as the book is opened and the pages turned. The Twentieth Century-Fox Produced Scripts Collection at the UCLA Arts-Special Collections Library indicates that Bruce Humberstone was considered as director of the picture, and that shots of the wild geese were filmed at Willows, CA.
