The film opens with the following written prologue: "By 1851, the gold rush to California's fabulous eldorado was in full swing. Gold seekers and adventureres, good and bad, came and fought for the precious dust. Some found fortune-and some found death." According to an October 1945 Hollywood Reporter news item, William Marshall originally was to star in this picture, and Tony Gaudio was to film it in Technicolor. According to a November 1953 Motion Picture Herald news item, the film was re-edited and re-released by Republic in 1951 under the title Flame of Sacramento.
