Facts about

Many Hollywood "behind the scenes" actions are shown, including Marshall Neilan directing The Eternal Three; and Fred Niblo directing The Famous Mrs. Fair. Both of these movies appear lost, so this may be the only extant footage of them.
A still photo taken on the set shows director Ernst Lubitsch visiting the cast and crew of this movie. The still appears in Daniel Blum's "Pictorial History of the Silent Screen" c.1953. page 231. As far as is known Lubitsch does not make a cameo or guest appearance in the film itself though he visited the set during filming.
A large number of the credited (in AFI and elsewhere) "celebrities" do not appear in the surviving version shown on Turner Classic Movies. They include: Hugo Ballin, Mabel Ballin, Robert Edeson, Claude Gillingwater, Dagmar Godowsky, Elaine Hammerstein, Alice Lake, Bessie Love, Patsy Ruth Miller, Anna Q. Nilsson, Milton Sills, Anita Stewart, Blanche Sweet, Florence Vidor, King Vidor, Johnnie Walker, and George Walsh.
