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. 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.
