No contemporary reviews or news items were located for this film. According to records of the NYSA, the picture was approved for showing in New York on April 20, 1935. Modern sources, however, list the release year as 1934. An Aywon press release on the film describes the end of the film as having "a novel twist, involving two beautiful girls, a doctor supreme, and unchallenged friendship, and a tempo of speed, galloping horses, whirling on to a sensational unexpected climax." Modern sources add the following information about the production: The picture was one of three that actor Bill Cody made for Aywon Films, a company owned by Nathan Hirsh, in early 1934. In the story, the mission of character "Bill Harris" is to avenge a relative's murder. The character of "Fred Palmer" reforms and is killed by the end of the picture. Modern sources add the following crew credits: Producer, Nathan Hirsh; Screenplay, Ollie Milliken; Camera, James Diamond; and Editing, William Austin. Additional modern source actors include Fred Parker (Bartender), Wally Wales (Sheriff Tom), Buck Morgan and Oscar Gahan. One modern source gives the alias of character "Bill Harris" as "Bill Austin," and the real name of "The Eagle" as "Don Salinas." This modern source also speculates that Ollie Milliken is a pseudonym for Oliver Drake, a prolific western screenwriter of the period.
