A working title for this film was The Great Seizer. According to a Hollywood Reporter pre-production news item, Bad Lands was set for a two-week shoot on location at Victorville, California. A Hollywood Reporter production chart lists Stanley Ridges in the cast, but his appearance in the released film has not been confirmed. Many contemporary reviews of the picture compare it to the 1934 RKO film The Lost Patrol (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1931-40; F3.2580).
