Facts about

It was in this film that silent screen legend John Gilbert made his disastrous talking-picture debut. His voice was said to have sounded high-pitched and frankly odd in a film that called for him to play a romantic swashbuckler. Audiences reportedly laughed at him at the most inappropriate moments.
This film has been restored and preserved for historical purposes, and is presently owned and controlled by Paramount Pictures us who bought the rights from MGM when they remade it as A Breath of Scandal.
Legend has it that the reason John Gilbert's voice sounded high and reedy was that M.G.M. studio head L.B. Mayer bore a grudge against Gilbert and told technicians to speed up the soundtrack to discredit the increasingly drunken and troublesome star. Certainly Gilbert's voice is flawless in the later Queen Christina.
