The working title of this film was The Purple Hieroglyph. Some scenes in this film were shot in the shipyards of San Francisco and at the naval station at San Diego, CA. First National Pictures made a film based on the same story in 1930 entitled Murder Will Out, which was directed by Clarence Badger and starred Jack Mulhall.
