Trivia:

Kelly's last film before the manslaughter charge was _The Poor Nut (1927)_ which was not released until the following August, by which time Kelly was behind bars. As a result, the film's distributors opted to remove Kelly's name from the credits, even though he played a prominent supporting role. See more »
