This film is considered an installment in the series of films dating back to the silent film What Price Glory? (1926), starring Lowe and McLaglen in their characters of Sergeant Harry Quirt and Captain Jim Flagg with Dolores del Río as the female costar. The pair made a sequel to that film called The Cock-Eyed World (1929), costarring Lili Damita. Two other films followed before Hot Pepper.[1][2]
