John Russell Corvell's novel was based on the play The Old Homestead by Denman Thompson (Boston, 5 April 1886). Hollywood Reporter production charts include Lorraine Bridges and Sally Sweet in the cast, but their participation in the completed film has not been confirmed. Denman Thompson's play was first filmed by Paramount in 1915, in a version directed by James Kirkwood and starring Frank Losee and Creighton Hale. James Cruze directed a 1922 Famous Players-Lasky version, which starred Theodore Roberts and George Fawcett. Both pictures were entitled The Old Homestead (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1911-20; F1.3219 and AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1921-30; F2.3946).
