- The first American film to show a toilet.
- King Vidor filmed many scenes in New York City streets using real crowds instead of extras, real buses and trains, and even real traffic cops. In one scene, a police officer is looking toward the camera, admonishing someone to "move along". In fact, he was actually addressing Vidor and his disguised film crew. Vidor cleverly incorporated it into the scene.
- King Vidor shot nine different endings before settling on the one used in the finished film, because MGM did not like to release films without a positive ending.
