Although this film was not viewed, the above credits and plot summary were taken from a studio cutting continuity and dialogue script. This film marks George Stevens' first time as a feature director. Stevens had previously directed only short films. Jack Jungmeyer is credited as the third scenarist (after Austin and Guiol) in Motion Picture Herald and copyright records, and is credited with continuity in Daily Variety. Program notes for a modern screening of the film state that printed on the film's leader are the words: "This print May be used on both Movietone and Disc equipment." In the early thirties, exhibitors had a dual choice of sound systems: the older Vitaphone sound-on-disc system and RCA's Movietone sound-on-film system, which eventually replaced the disc system. This film was the last in a series of seven Cohens and Kellys films. For more information on the series, consult the Series Index and see the entry for The Cohens and Kellys in Africa (above).
