According to information found in the MPAA/PCA files at the AMPAS Library, there was some concern over the mercy killing aspect of the film, but the film was nevertheless certified. These files also indicate that David O. Selznick had planned to film another adaptation of the source material in the late 1930s-early 1940s, but this film was never made. This was actor Louis Hayward's final film in England before moving to the United States, where he had a successful acting career for many years. George Warwick Deeping's novel had been filmed previously in 1927 by Feature Productions, with H. B. Warner and Anna Q. Nilsson, and directed by Herbert Brenon (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films; F2.5261).
