Al Jolson would buy the rights to the play cheaply and sell them to Warner Brothers with the proviso that Cagney and Blondell be cast in the Warner Bros. film version, Sinners' Holiday (1930). It is unknown why Jolson, never known as a benefactor to anyone, chose to include this requirement and, oddly, he and Cagney would never meet. Keighley would also follow to Hollywood and find long-time employment at Warner Brothers, directing Cagney in five films there from 1935-41.
