In the opening credits of the film, Dame May Whitty is called "The Distinguished English Actress." This was Whitty's second American film. English actor Robert Coote, who portrayed "Stanby," made his American motion picture debut in the film. The Bayard Veiller play was also the basis for a 1919 Acme film directed by Leonce Perret, starring Yvonne Delva (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1911-20; F1.4425); a 1929 M-G-M film, directed by Tod Browning, starring Conrad Nagel (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1921-30; F2.5630) and a 1954 CBS television drama.
