Trivia

This film is presumed lost. 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) or in February 1956, Jack Warner sold the rights to all of his pre-December 1949 films to Associated Artists Productions.
