Carey was primarily known as a star of Westerns and only one of the seven films did not fit into that genre. Assigned as director was 31-year-old Tom Forman, who less than two years later, in November 1926, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The film was based upon the 1869 Bret Harte story "Tennessee’s Pardner," which has also been filmed as Tennessee's Pardner (1916), The Golden Princess (1925), and Tennessee's Partner (1955).
