This film was compiled from footage originally released through Universal's weekly Screen Magazine and Current Events, a series of animated and newsreel shorts. On August 11, 1918, Carl Laemmle screened the film in New York for the U.S. Committee on Public Information, which approved its release with a few deletions. The copyright submission credits S. H. Mackean as scenarist, but as the film was composed mainly of documentary footage, the F. H. McKean "titles by" credit as listed in Wid's is probably more accurate. Some sources list the film at six reels.
