Trivia

The sets for the film were adjusted versions of the sets used at His Majesty's Theatre, reduced in size and painted in monochrome colours instead of full colours for filming. 15 lorries were needed to take the props and costumes from the theatre, in Haymarket, St James, London to the film studio at Ealing Green, Ealing - a distance of c.14.50 Km (c.9 miles) - for filming on Thursday, 9 February 1911 and then back to the theatre in time for that evening's performance, at 8.00 pm. There is no indication that the theatre performances had been interrupted to help the play's cast and crew prepare for filming - the previous day, Wednesday, 8 February, had had the regular midweek matinee as well as the evening performance.
