Throughout the years, the film has been cited as a Chaney picture but, according to the American Film Institute Catalog, his character has little screen time. In fact, of all Chaney's feature films of the 1920s, this picture seems to have less of him on screen than any other feature he made. The leading character is portrayed by Dorothy Mackaill, then an up-and-coming young star. This film was Chaney's only Paramount film of the 1920s, the last having been Treasure Island, and was one of the last films he appeared in as a freelance artist before signing a multiple picture deal with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.
