Facts about

Top-echelon director A. Edward Sutherland was originally assigned to direct. His contract contained an unusual "Pay or Play" clause, and he earned $17,500 for his involvement in the production. Because of interminable production delays, Sutherland moved on to another project before shooting began. His replacement, Lambert Hillyer, who had directed mostly "B" westerns, earned just $5,000 for directing the film.
This was originally to be another project for director James Whale. The script he submitted was so "outrageous" (in various senses of the word) that he was taken off the project. A virtual list of writers submitted treatments and scripts.
Completed for $278,000 it was one of Universal's most expensive productions of the 1930s.
