Trivia

In an article titled "Mad Movie Money" that was published in "The American Mercury" of September, 1927 (and republished in the October, 1927, "Reader's Digest" - pp. 353-4), Welford Beaton wrote about the financial waste of several 1920s movies, including "Dulcy". According to Beaton, the first draft of the "Dulcy" screenplay - presumably by Anita Loos and John Emerson - was "an ineffective treatment". Producer Joseph M. Schenck then handed the writing duties over to Frances Marion and C. Gardner Sullivan. Their screenplay of "Dulcy" produced 20 reels of film (about 3 hours and 40 minutes). Director Sidney Franklin lost patience trying to edit the film and walked away from the project. Sullivan then offered to edit the film and was able to cut it down to about eight reels. Beaton called the final cut "an indifferent picture" while noting that Sullivan "was later hailed as a remarkable chap for thus snatching poor 'Dulcy' from the grave he had helped to dig!"
