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.

"Lux Radio Theater" broadcast a 60 minute radio adaptation of the movie on January 17, 1938 with George Arliss and Florence Arliss reprising their film roles.
