The film was one of only 10 filmed in British Phototone, a sound-on-disc system which used 12-inch discs. All of the other nine films made in this process were short films. In March 1929, this film and The Crimson Circle, filmed in the DeForest Phonofilm sound-on-film system, were 'trade-shown' to cinema exhibitors.
