Did You Know?

Was not shot in 3-D as previously reported. According to the Moving Picture World, some test footage was shot of (among other things) John Mason enacting scenes from the film (although not specifically from the film). Marie Doro has often been miscredited as being in "Jim the Penman," but was actually a subject of another test. "Jim the Penman" as a feature was shot flat and released flat only.See more »
