Starring American actor Victor Jory and newcomer Australian actress Margaret Dare, the western style film was shot predominately at Rawdon Vale on the outskirts of the town. With its rolling hills and ample cattle, the location was perfect. Local farmers were used as extras in the film to look after the cattle. The film premiered later that year.

The film was recently featured in the Manning River Times and MidCoast Stories video series Our History, Our Memories.
