The film is notable for marking the screen debut of Peter Lorre. The film was believed lost until 1984. It wasn't until it was restored in 1996 that Lorre's small role was noted. Lorre had never spoken about the film and always maintained that M (1931) was his first film, probably because it was a breakthrough role as opposed to a brief, uncredited cameo.
