The Fox was Harry Carey's first Universal-Jewel production. Jewels were prestigious productions with higher budgets and longer running times than other Universal features. We can see the huge crowd of horsemen in this ad.

Brute Island was a rerelease of a 1914 feature, McVeagh of the South Seas, which Harry Carey wrote, directed and starred in.
