Movie Trivia:
  • Immediate inspiration for the Sept. 1926 film seems to have been the April 1926 New York stage adaptation (one of many). On Broadway that April, director Rollo Lloyd also acted the lead role of Mathias (which became Barrymore's film role) and Edward Loeffler played the mesmerist (Karloff's film role). J M Kerrigan (later seen in a number of John Ford films) on Broadway '26 played Father Walter.
