The working title of this film was Ten Nights in a Barroom. Although several Hollywood Reporter news items announced that Republic intended the picture to be a remake of the novel (Philadelphia, 1839) and play (Washington, D.C., 23 August 1858), Ten Nights in a Barroom, which had been filmed numerous times previously, copyright records and reviews noted that it had no connection with the novel or play. A April 19, 1941 Los Angeles Times news item noted that Joseph Kane was scheduled to direct and produce the picture. Although a Hollywood Reporter production chart includes Tim Ryan in the cast, he does not appear in the completed film. An February 11, 1942 Variety news item stated that Republic was going to produce another film and release it under the original title Ten Nights in a Barroom that year, but it did not.
