Completed in 1961 (although Father Dugan's truck bears 1956 California license plates, the birth date of the dog in the racing program is given as June 1961), this was never released theatrically in either the US or Mexico; the print broadcast on Turner Classic Movies bears a 1964 copyright statement by Specialty Records, Inc., which is the record label owned by the film's producer, Arthur Rupe
. No actual copyright registration, however, can be confirmed. See more
