Facts about

Risë Stevens' rendition of "America the Beautiful" (music by Samuel A. Ward, lyrics by Katharine Lee Bates) was deleted from this movie. Footage of the anthem would appear in a short subject titled We Must Have Music, a cavalcade of clips from MGM musicals between 1929 and 1941. Also contained in the short were Miss Stevens and Nelson Eddy singing the last few stanzas of "My Hero," taken from this feature.
In 1955, Risë Stevens again starred in another version, this time co-starring Eddie Albert: The Chocolate Soldier.
In 1924, Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne starred on Broadway in what is considered the definitive version of the non-musical play "The Guardsman". This was adapted from Hungarian to English by Philip Moeller. This production opened at the Garrick Theatre in New York on Oct. 13, 1924 and ran for 248 performances.
