This story was based on the "Silver Annie" episode of Stewart's 1953- 54 NBC radio series, "The Six Shooter." This was one of three Frank Burt radio scripts purchased by Stewart from that radio series.
The theme music played during the episode is Basil Adlam's "Highland Lament", from Stewart's "The Six Shooter" radio series.
This episode reunites Stewart with Beulah Bondi, his frequent co- star from films such as It's a Wonderful Life and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.
This is the only time Stewart actually played Britt Ponset, the character from his "Six Shooter" radio series, on film by name.
