This was RKO contract player Barbara Hale's second appearance in a Falcon film. She had previously appeared in the cowboy-themed Falcon Out West. Her best known performance would come more than a decade after this, when she was cast in her recurring, Emmy winning role as the title character's secretary Della Street in the original TV version of Perry Mason.

When the murder holds a gun on the five main characters and dashes out of his office, he closes the door and then fires three shots through the door from the outside. One of the bullets smashes a bust of Shakespeare inside the office, but we see NO holes appear in the door while we hear the three shots. And yet, when the camera cuts away from the smashed bust and back to the closed door, suddenly it DOES have three bullet holes surrounded by splintered wood.
