The opening title card reads "Metro-Goldwyn presents Jackie Coogan in The Rag Man." Coogan's name is also listed in the Cast of Characters list, appearing last, just before the story begins. Coogan and Max Davidson revived their roles for the film Old Clothes, released in November 1925. That film was also a Metro-Goldwyn production directed by Edward F. Cline.
In 2004, when the film was broadcast on the Turner Classic Movies cable channel, it was accompanied by a new score written by composer Linda Martinez (1976-2005), the 2003 winner of the Turner Classic Movies Young Film Composers competition.
