The working titles of this film were Deep in the Heart of Texas and Bad Men of Texas. While the film's credits list the character played by Jane Darwell as "Mrs. Scott," she is called "Aunt Hattie Florence" in the film, and allusions are made to the fact that she is the spinster sister-in-law of Colonel Colbert Scott. In an April 1942 Hollywood Reporter news item, Universal referred to the film as a "Super-Western," in an attempt to differentiate it from the typical "B film" westerns made by the studio. Producer George Waggner and actors Robert Stack, Broderick Crawford and Andy Devine had previously worked together on the 1941 Universal western Badlands of Dakota (see entry above).
