According to Motion Picture Herald, the fictional character of "Senator Roberts" was added to the screenplay in order to placate both Democratic and Republican party leaders, who expressed concern over the way their parties were to be depicted. George Arliss played Hamilton in his Broadway production for two seasons. According to contemporary sources, Arliss requested actress June Collyer for the role of "Mrs. Reynolds," feeling that her association with more innocent roles would help her to seem like the kind of woman who might attract a man like Hamilton.
