Although this film was a box-office failure in 1932, it later had admirers. One of them was the movie historian William K. Everson
. In an Everson and Sir Alfred Hitchcock
interview in 1972, Everson showed his admiration for this movie, and also praised the bus and train chase scene. Hitchcock was delighted by Everson's enthusiasm, and went on to explain how one of the sequences in the bus and train chase scene was shot. See more
Barton is shot in his right wrist early in the film, and his wrist is bandaged. The bandage is visible for most of the movie, but when Barton jumps in the water to save Nora, we don't see the bandage any longer. Barton is able to pull Nora to safety with his right arm, and afterwards when he is talking to Doyle, we still don't see the bandage, and Barton puts his right hand in his pocket repeatedly, not showing any sign of injury.
