This film received one of its first, and rare early television broadcasts in San Francisco Monday 27 October 1958 on KGO-TV (Channel 7). Although occasional telecasts in less prominent markets did take place, there is no reliable documentation that it was ever televised in New York City, Los Angeles or Philadelphia at this time.

Considering that this movie was made over 70 years ago when women had no choices, especially about the indiscretions of her husband, it showed self-empowerment to the max. The costumes by Adrian (a legend in his own time) as well as the direction of C.B. DeMille, were and still is, the zenith of their own fields. The disaster ending and the female "battle of their wits" were the high points. I especially like the "Cat Walk" number opening the entrance of the party venue aboard the zepplin. What a care-free time after WWI and before WWII. Lillian Roth, the authoress, did a fine acting/singing/dancing job and it was cute to see how daring those costumes really were even by todays standards. See this flick!
