This was the talkie debut for Warren William who would become one of the major stars for Warner Brothers over the next five years. This was Bebe Daniels' first film for Warners, after leaving RKO Radio Pictures, which had failed to renew her contract due to a backlash against musicals.


Preservation status[edit]

The film is now considered to be a lost film, with no film elements known to exist. The soundtrack, recorded separately on Vitaphone disks, survives.
