Movie Trivia:
  • Lavishly produced by Universal at a time, in retrospect, could least afford it. The studio was not yet aware of the failure of their most recent Dickens' adaption, Great Expectations (1934) and due to Carl Laemmle's financial excesses and asleep-at-the-wheel managerial style, Universal was rapidly sinking into a financial debacle. This film, like so many of Universal's of this period, flopped.
  • The novel, the last by Charles Dickens, was unfinished at the time of his death in 1870.
  • Boris Karloff was the first actor considered for the role of the opium-addicted John Jasper.
