Trivia

This title was originally one of over 700 features included in the MGM feature film package which was initially sold to local television stations in 1956; however, there is no record of the film ever actually having been shown, and later editions of the TV Key Book list it as "Withdrawn by MGM-TV; Bad Negative"; the same situation applies to The Rogue Song (1930).
