Facts about

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.

Vitaphone production reels #3531-3539
Previously produced as a silent film - Disraeli, also starring George Arliss.
