Like many of Talmadge's silents of the 1920s The Lady is derived from a stage play. The play, The Lady, ran on Broadway from December 4, 1923 to February 1924 at Charles Frohman's Empire Theatre. It was produced by A. H. Woods. Mary Nash played Talmadge's part of Polly Pearl and Elizabeth Risdon played Fanny Le Clare which in the film was played by Doris Lloyd. Also in the cast was child actor Junior Durkin soon to find bigger fame in films.
