Trivia

Cinematographer Gaetano di Ventimiglia hid the camera underneath Sir Alfred Hitchcock's bunk, in an attempt to avoid Italian duties. The unexposed film was confiscated, and the crew bought new film to shoot on-location, seriously depleting the budget. Later, the confiscated film was returned.

Although shot in 1925, and shown to the British press in March 1926, this movie wasn't released in the U.K. until after The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog (1927) was a massive hit in 1927.

This is the first Sir Alfred Hitchcock movie more widely available. Number 13 (1922) is thought to be lost, and only one reel of Always Tell Your Wife (1923) has survived (and even then it's next-to-impossible to track down).
