One of over 700 Paramount Productions, filmed between 1929 and 1949, which were sold to MCA/Universal in 1958 for television distribution, and have been owned and controlled by Universal ever since. Its initial telecast took place in Omaha Sunday 8 March 1959 on KETV (Channel 7), but its age and obscurity yielded little sponsor interest and it was not taken off the shelf for over a year until it was aired in Johnstown 2 May 1960 on WJAC (Channel 6).
