Following the introduction of sound films, a large number of multi-language versions (MLVs) were made by UFA to allow its films to reach the lucrative British and American markets. The film was produced by Erich Pommer who took an interest in MLVs.[1] The film was part of a transitional stage in the development of MLVs as they moved from direct translations into more varied products tailored to individual markets.
