The production re-teamed Barker and Brice who were currently starring in a series of popular Karl May westerns. The film's sets were designed by the art directors Enrique Alarcón and Heinrich Weidemann. It was shot at studios in Barcelona as well as on location in Andalucía.


Two celebrated gunfighters are separately hired to come to a small Canadian town in Manitoba named "Glory" and fight each other. Instead they join forces and take on a bandit gang that dominates the area.
