Goofs

Early in the movie - which is set in 1572 - Catherine de Medici meets with her son, King Charles IX. She is accompanied by an entourage, one of whom is holding Norma Talmadge's personal pet, a sable-colored toy Pomeranian named "Dinky". Toy Pomeranians didn't exist before Queen Victoria ascended the throne of Great Britain in 1837. Before then, Pomeranians were medium-sized dogs, had white coats, and typically weighed 30 to 40 pounds (13.6 to 18.2 kg). Victoria wanted to develop a breed of Pomeranian lap dogs, so she began collecting and breeding Pomeranian litter runts a few years before she became queen. It would take about 40 years before toy Pomeranians weighing 4 to 8 pounds (1.8 to 3.6 kg) with a variety of coat colors were available - about 300 years after this film takes place. See more »

Costume epic the longest yet of Talmadge film career

This historical piece, set in the Huguenot days of France, is Norma Talmadge's 37th feature film and the longest to date at two hours. The plot involves a man forced into servitude who falls in love with the sister of his persecutor. It was Ms. Talmadge's fourth involvement with director, Frank Lloyd and the cast included future star, Wallace Beery. Copies of this film exist at the Library of Congress and the George Eastman House. Thanks to Greta de Groat for her web site on Ms. Talmadge, from which the above was gleaned.
