Facts about

This was Charles Chaplin's second critical failure, after his short film Sunnyside. That short was re-issued with a new score with this film in 1977.
On New Year's Day 1924, Edna Purviance was at a party with oil tycoon Courtland Dines and Mabel Normand when Normand's chauffeur, "defending Mabel Normand's honor" shot Dines with a gun owned by Mabel Normand. Dines refused to testify at the trial where the chauffeur (Horrace Greer, who was an escapee from a chain gang living under an assumed name) was found not guilty. As a result of Purviance's arms-length relationship to this scandal, this film was banned in several US cities.
