Ivor Novello starred in both the London and New York productions of his play. Working titles of this film were The Truth Game, Mister and Mistress and A Family Affair. Variety notes that Nora Gregor was a protegee of Viennese theatrical impressario Max Reinhardt and was brought to Los Angeles by M-G-M. Gregor's only other known English-language film was The Man in Possession (1931, see below). Modern sources note that her only other American films were German versions of M-G-M pictures produced in Hollywood. Gregor later appeared in the 1939 Jean Renoir directed French film La regle du jeu (The Rules of the Game), playing the female lead, Christine de la Chesnaye, opposite Marcel Dalio. M-G-M made another film based on Novello's play, Free and Easy, directed by George Sidney in 1941, starring Robert Cummings and Ruth Hussey. C. Aubrey Smith and Forrester Harvey also played in that film, although they did not reprise their earlier roles.
