The film, originally titled "Outlaws of the Big Bend", began production in the middle of January 1938. The picture was still in production in early March, and was originally scheduled for a March 30 release. However, by the middle of March, the release had been delayed until April 30. The Legion of Decency gave the film an A-1 rating, meaning they were "unobjectionable for general patronage".
The Independent Exhibitor's Film Bulletin gave the film a positive review, calling it "A nicely made formula western with music that moves at mile-a-minute clip and has sufficient action for the most ardent western fans." They complimented the acting of Starrett, Meredith and Curtis, as well as the supporting cast. They also felt the direction was good, and the singing of Grayson and the Sons of the Pioneers added to the picture.
