Facts about

Film debut of Dorothy Burgess.
Raoul Walsh was cast as the Cisco Kid, as well as being the director; but during a return drive to Los Angeles from Utah, a jackrabbit jumped through the windshield of Walsh's car, with both the rabbit and the broken glass hitting Walsh in the face. (Safety glass was added to cars the following year.)

Some footage of Walsh, in chase scenes and long shots, remains in the film.
