The working title of this film was The Two Orphans. Additional material for this film was apparently drawn from Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities and Thomas Carlyle's The French Revolution. According to contemporary sources a 12 reel, 12,000 ft. version of the film was released April 30, 1922. An earlier adaptation of the play Les deux orphelines was produced by Fox in 1915 under the title The Two Orphans, directed by Herbert Brenon and starring Theda Bara and Jean Sothern (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1911-20).
