"Lux Radio Theater" broadcast a 60 minute radio adaptation of the movie on January 20, 1941 with Merle Oberon reprising her film role.

Arthur Hoyt is in studio records/casting call lists as "Valet," but he did not appear in the movie. Modern sources also list Billy Wayne, Ernie Adams and Jack Baxley as Rodeo Riders, but they did not appear or were not identifiable in the movie.

William Wyler began as director of this movie, but walked off the picture after an argument with Samuel Goldwyn about extensive retakes he wanted. Goldwyn suspended Wyler, who did not return as director. However, he and Goldwyn settled their differences, and he did direct Goldwyn's next picture, Wuthering Heights. H.C. Potter was brought in to replace Wyler. Production and script problems resulted in the film going way over schedule, and Potter had to leave before the film was finished due to his commitment to start The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle. Editor Stuart Heisler was brought into finish directing the picture.

David Niven played the role of a "British Diplomat" during filming, and Benita Hume also was "Mary Smith's Stepmother." However, both roles were eliminated before release.

During the film's production, news items listed Iron Eyes Cody, Silver Tip Baker, Steve Clemente, John Judd and Danny Borzage in the cast. None of these actors, however, have been confirmed.

Several trade papers and national magazines noted that the film set a record for the number of screenwriters who worked on the script. Beside the 4 given credit onscreen, at least 13 others were involved.

The role of "Horace Smith" was originally performed by Thomas Mitchell, but due to production problems shooting went over schedule and Mitchell had to leave before his scenes were shot due to a previous commitment. All of his previously shot scenes were scrapped and his part was recast with Henry Kolker and all his scenes were re-shot.
