The film was reissued on December 15, 1929, with talking sequences added featuring Mary Philbin and Norman Kerry. For the reissued version, scenes with John Sainpolis were deleted and others were inserted with Edward Martindel in the role of "Philippe de Chagny." The role played by John Miljan was completely removed from the reissue. Scenes from the original, in which part of the opera Faust is performed, were dubbed with arias from the work.
