Facts about

Previously produced as a silent film - Disraeli, also starring George Arliss.
In a separately filmed trailer, Vitaphone production reel #3130, George Arliss speaks to the audience about the film.
The film was re-released in 1933, at which time the title credits were re-done, Arliss given billing as "Mr. George Arliss," and an NRA (National Recovery Act) emblem added; this is the version which presently survives. Unfortunately, the remainder of the film is cropped off the left side, in order to accommodate the sound-on-film system track, which had, by then, replaced the now obsolete Vitaphone sound-on-disc system, and required a slightly narrower picture image as a result.
