    The film was inspired by Billy Graham's 1959 crusade and was made by World Wide Pictures, the film arm of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

    In October 1959, the American director, Dick Ross, and stars, arrived in Sydney. Ross co-wrote the script with Australian author John Ford. Filming started in November and mostly took place near Camden. The movie was made with funds raised during the crusade and took 25 days to shoot.

    The film starred Marcia Hathaway, who was killed by a shark in 1963. She had become a born again Christian during Billy Graham's visit to Australia in 1959. She is the last person to date to be killed by a shark in Sydney Harbour.

    Aboriginal singer Jimmy Little made his film debut.
