In her 14th film, Marion Davies plays the young Diana May. The film required Davies to play a faded, aged woman and also employs a science fiction theme of rejuvenation. This was a troubled production. Albert Capellani began production in April 1921, but he was replaced by Robert G. Vignola (who may have re-shot all of Capellani's footage), and the film was finally released in August 1922. Forrest Stanley co-stars with Davies for the third time.[4]
