Facts about

The play, "Bless You Sister" by John Meehan & Robert Riskin opened in New York on 26 December 1927 and closed in January 1928 after 28 performances. The opening night cast included Robert Ames, Charles Bickford and Alice Brady.
This film was made before the days of process screen photography, so few special effects were employed. In a testament to the actors' bravery and dedication to their craft, David Manners recalled that he and Barbara Stanwyck had to work near live lions, separated only by invisible netting. The actor said: "I could smell their breath". Similarly, during the climactic fire scene, Stanwyck had to stand amid real blazing fires, swirling smoke, and falling timbers.
The photograph of Florence's father appears to be that of Paul Weigel.
