According to the Hollywood Reporter review, Willard Mack was listed as the dialoguer of this film, along with Robert E. Hopkins, and Basil Wrangell was listed as the editor, along with Charles Hochberg (whose name the review incorrectly spelled as Hockberg). According to a contemporary Hollywood Reporter news item, actor Norman Phillips, Jr. performed on the same M-G-M sound stage on which his father, vaudeville actor Norman Phillips, Sr., collapsed and died five months earlier. According to modern sources, the film was made at a cost of $276,000. Modern sources also note that M-G-M assigned directors Jules White and Zion Myers, known primarily for their work on talking dog shorts, instead of Edward Sedgwick, who directed Keaton's previous pictures. Keaton apparently disliked this film, and is quoted as saying "I knew before the camera was put up for the first scene that it was practically impossible to get a good motion picture."
