This was the third film version of the E. Phillips Oppenheim novel. It was first filmed by Famous Players-Lasky in 1921, starring James Kirkwood and Ann Forrest, and directed by George Melford (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1921-30; F2.2226), then by Universal in 1935, starring Edmund Lowe and Valerie Brown, and directed by Alan Crosland (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1931-40; F3.1717). The novel was adapted twice for television: in 1955, as part of Chrysler's Climax series on CBS, starring Michael Rennie and Maureen O'Sullivan, and directed by Allen Reisner; and in 1960, as an NBC production, starring Keith Mitchell and Jeanette Stark, and directed by David Greene. All of the above-mentioned adaptations were titled The Great Impersonation.
