Star Francine Everett's name is misspelled as "Francine Everette" in the credits. Although the viewed print contained a copyright statement by True Thompson, the film was not listed in the Catalog of Copyright Entries for motion pictures. As noted in modern sources, the storyline of the film is loosely based on W. Somerset Maugham's short story "Miss Thompson," in The Smart Set (Apr 1921). The short story was adapted for the stage by John Colton and Clemence Randolph as Rain (New York, 7 November 1922), and adapted for motion pictures several times. For information on other film adaptations of the story, consult the entry for the 1932 Lewis Milestone-directed United Artists release of Rain, starring Joan Crawford (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1931-40; F3.3606). Although neither contemporary reviews nor an exact release date have been located, a completed script of the film was submitted to NYSA in 1947. A modern source states that this film was shot in Fort Worth, San Antonio and Dallas, TX. A phonograph recording of "Blues in the Night" by Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer is heard in the film.
