Facts about

There was a break in the film in which the audience was treated to a live lecture by "The Eminent Hygiene Commentator Elliot Forbes", entitled "The Secrets of Sensible Sex". The lecture featured a pitch for a book that would be sold to the audience. At one point there were over 25 units working, each accompanied by their own "Elliot Forbes".
Producer Kroger Babb had so much faith in this project that he determined that the film itself meet the accepted technical standards of a professional production. To achieve this, within the limits of his available capital, he approached one of Hollywood's leading poverty row studios, Monogram Pictures, to actually make the film. Monogram assigned producer Barney A. Serecky (as production supervisor), director of photography Marcel Le Picard, editor Richard Currier and especially director William Beaudine. This team had long experience with creating "one week wonders" on time and within meager budgets.
Olympic star Jesse Owens was the film's pitchman in black theaters for a time.
