The film's pre-release titles were The Captain's Wife and The Marked Woman. According to Variety this was Lil Dagover's first American film. Reviews call Dagover's character "Lottie," although she is referred to as "Deanna" in the film. Michael Morton's adaptation of Claude Farrre's and Lucien Npoty's play, entitled In the Night Watch, opened in London on December 21, 1918; its New York premiere was on January 29, 1921. This became the basis of the 1928 First National film The Night Watch, which was directed by Alexander Korda and starred Paul Lukas and Billie Dove (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1921-30; F2.3843). Farrre's and Npoty's play was also the basis for a British/French co-production in 1925 and a French film in 1935, both entitled Veilles d'Armes.
