Herbert Wilcox had a lot of success distributing a British film, A Peep Behind the Scenes (1919) and decided to produce a British film himself. He raised £1,400 and picked The Wonderful Story because he believed as it was homely and had few characters it would be suited for the cinema.[3] The film was made on budget of £1,400 and Wilcox sold the rights to it for £4,000. Despite being acclaimed by the critics it was considered a failure at the box office.[4]
