The following written acknowledgment appears on the official credits in the file on the film in the MPAA/PCA Collection at the AMPAS Library, but was missing from the print viewed: "The exteriors of this production were filmed in the environs of Papantla, Tecolutla and Poza Rica in the state of Veracruz and near Texcoco, Mexico. The interiors were filmed at Churubusco Studios, Mexico City. Cosmos Productions gratefully acknowledges the cooperation of the officials and people of the town of Papantla, Veracruz." Papantla is near the Toltec ruins of El Tajin, featured in the film. Although the onscreen credits state "And Introducing Armando Silvestre," he had already appeared in several Mexican and Hollywood films.
Cosmos Productions, Inc. was a company owned by Reginald LeBorg [frequently listed as "Le Borg," as in the onscreen credits of this film]. The White Orchid was his first film as a producer.
