According to a pre-release news item in Motion Picture Herald, Alberto Valentino, brother of Rudolph, was signed to appear in the film as an Italian opera singer. Richard Bonelli, a baritone for the Metropolitan Opera, made his film debut in this picture. Michelette Burani also played "Bice" in the stage version. According to the pressbook, the opera scenes were backed by the Los Angeles Opera Company. The pressbook also indicates that Paramount secured the use of a house of a wealthy Los Angeles resident through the Los Angeles Assistance League, which used the money from the rental for charity. The Gilda Varesi Archibald and Dorothea Donn-Byrne play was first filmed in 1922 as Enter Madame!, starring Clara Kimball Young (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1921-30; F2.1540).
