NOTES

powered by AFI

Although the work by George Gibbs and E. Lawrence Dudley is called a novel on screen, no evidence has been found of its publication in that form. Modern sources note that Gibbs and Dudley wrote a play specifically for George Arliss who had a longtime ambition to play Voltaire. It was never performed but was the basis for Maude Howell and Paul Green's adaptation.
