The film was shot on location in Almería, particularly in the Tabernas Desert which often featured in European made westerns. It was made in English and distributed in the United States by Crown International Pictures, a specialist in low-budget action films. It was marketed as being a female version of Indiana Jones, although it more closely resembled a 1940s-style Western serial which its opening credits referenced. Cimber had previously directed Landon in Hundra the year before.
A blonde-haired half Apache woman known as Yellow Hair searches in Mexico for a missing temple filled with gold with assistance of her easy-going sidekick the Pecos Kid. They have to face both Colonel Torres of the Mexican Army, also searching for the gold, and the tribe of Indians who are guarding it.
