The original trailer for this film claimed that it was the first to show the real truth about Alcatraz and other federal prisons. In fact, this started out as a documentary short on federal prisons. Louis B. Mayer asked shorts director Jacques Tourneur to expand the documentary. Mayer like what he saw and ordered Tourneur to use the footage to create a (fictional) feature film. This became Tourneur's first American feature film.
