Although shot in 2-colour technicolour, some prints are shown in black-and-white. During its original 1932 run, "Doctor X" was shown in colour only in the major cities. Cheaper black-and-white prints were processed and shipped to smaller cities and towns.

The film was actually shot in two versions. The main unit shot in two-color Technicolor. A second camera unit shot the scenes at the same time in black and white. The black and white version was meant for release outside the U.S. where Technicolor did not have lab facilities.

This film was shot in two versions. One camera unit, under Ray Rennahan, shot the film in two-color Technicolor. A second camera unit, under Richard Towers, shot the scenes at the same time in black and white. The black and white version was meant for foreign territories where Technicolor did not have facilities.
