The onscreen title reads: "James Oliver Curwood's The Wolf Hunters." Although the characters played by January Clayton and Edward Norris are called "Rene" and "Paul Latrec" in the film, the Variety review lists them as "Greta" and "Henri." According to a July 1949 Hollywood Reporter news item, Jimmie Davis was originally to star in this film. A September 1949 Hollywood Reporter news item notes that location shooting took place at Cedar Lake, CA. Curwood's novel was first filmed in 1926 as The Wolf Hunters by Ben Wilson Productions, directed by Stuart Paton and starring Robert McKim and Virginia Browne (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1921-30; F2.6450) and was remade by Monogram in 1934 as The Trail Beyond (see AFI Catalog Feature Films 1931-40; F3.4727).
