Trivia Previously thought lost, the film was found in 2010 stored in a New Zealand film archive. According to a June 7, 2010, article in the "Los Angeles Times", this film--unlike several others found in the same cache--was considered so valuable that its restoration was carried out in New Zealand before it had several copies shipped to the US. The restoration was funded by 20th Century-Fox, whose predecessor, Fox Films, originally produced the picture. See more »
