Parts of the viewed print were tinted blue. According to an July 8, 1932 news item in Film Daily, this film was banned in Mexico City by the Federal District Government. On February 4, 1932, Hollywood Reporter reported that the film's exterior sets at the Paramount ranch were damaged by rain, forcing the production crew to shoot the interiors ahead of schedule. Motion Picture Herald suggested to exhibitors of this film that they use tie-ups with "every B-V-D [men's underwear] dealer in these United States." Paul Dickey's and Charles Goddard's play was also the source of a 1923 B. P. Schulberg production of the same title, directed by Tom Forman and starring Kenneth Harlan, Miriam Cooper and Walter Long (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1921-30; F2.0654).
