Some publicity photos from the film show Dane with Buster Keaton, but it is not clear whether Keaton had a cameo in the film that was later cut or merely posed for a gag photo while visiting the set.[3]

One copy, with sound discs, is in the collection of the UCLA Film & Television Archive.[4] The Library of Congress database lists no copies.[5]
