The film is in the Weimar tradition of "street films", which examined the lower-depths of society, and has become the film for which Mittler is best known, even though he had only been appointed to make it after another director had to withdraw.[1] The film was produced by the left-wing Prometheus Film, a German subsidiary of the Soviet company Mezhrabpom-Film. The film is also known by the alternative title Harbor Drift.

Preservation status

On June 1, 2014, the San Francisco Silent Film Festival presented a 35mm print of the film restored by the Bundesarchiv-Filmarchiv Berlin.
