Trivia

The sequences of Native American life were shot in Technicolor, while the rest of the film was photographed in black and white and tinted amber. This was actually an accident, (see also If.... (1968)). The financial backers for the film ran out of money to spend on the then very expensive color film and ordered the filmmakers to immediately switch to black-and-white. Upon hearing this, the filmmakers realized that all the scenes at the Native American village had been shot.

Louise Brooks was reportedly cast in this film and appears to have been paid for three weeks of filming, but no footage of her appears in the film. She was replaced by Julie Carter upon leaving for Germany before the rest of the cast and crew had left for shooting in Arizona.
