The film is based on a novel by Bryan Edgar Wallace, one of several films made in an attempt to capitalize on Rialto Film's successful series of adaptions of the novels of his father, Edgar Wallace. It was shot at Spandau Studios in Berlin with sets designed by art director Hans Jürgen Kiebach and Ernst Schomer.

The film is also known by the alternative title The Racetrack Murders.
