Facts about

"The Screen Guild Theater" broadcast a 30 minute radio adaptation of the movie on December 17, 1939 with Norma Shearer reprising her film role.
Fredric March commented to his first cousin, Kathryn Davis, about working with Norma Shearer, that, yes, she was a great actress, professional, etc., but could be difficult, because she constantly expected perfection. When Davis asked what that specifically meant, March replied, "She was never satisfied, kept having us do take after take." Pausing, he continued, unabashed, "Especially our love scenes. She always wanted to redo all the love scenes, several times!" Davis wanted to ask why he supposed Shearer always wanted to retake the love scenes in particular, but thought better of it and kept silent.
Cinematographer Lee Garmes left during production and Charles G. Clarke took over, but did not receive screen credit.
