When the picture was released in 1930, Bert Lahr, who had created the role of Gink on Broadway, strongly criticized the fact that Joe E. Brown had copied many of Lahr's mannerisms in the film.

For many years, this film was presumed lost, since only Vitaphone discs seemed to survive. In the late 1949s and 1950s, Warner Bros. destroyed many of its negatives due to nitrate film decomposition. Studio records indicate that the negative of filmography pre-1931 was marked "Junked 12/27/48" (December 27, 1948); however, a B&W nitrate duplicate negative survives at the UCLA Film and Television Archive. In February 1956, Jack Warner sold the rights to all of his pre-December 1949 films to Associated Artists Productions for television distribution but this title was not included, quite possibly because of legal entanglements resulting from either literary and/or musical rights. So, at this point, it's a question of legalities before the surviving B&W version can be publicly shown once again.
