Production notes

The film was shot on location in Mount Lowe, California. Director Allan Dwan also shot The Honor of the Mounted (also starring Murdock MacQuarrie, Pauline Bush, and Lon Chaney) at the same time.[2] During filming, Lon Chaney and Arthur Rosson got lost in a canyon and were not located until the end of the day. The cast and crew were also stranded in their cabins for five days due to heavy rains. Dwan had the cast rehearse for an upcoming film, Richelieu, in an effort to save time.[3]
