Trivia

The role of "Mary Denby" was first assigned to Edna Goodrich, and a good portion of the film was in the can when her drinking problem became so severe that Cecil B. DeMille fired her and shut down production long enough to find a new star, Cleo Ridgely. DeMille was then forced to continue directing The Cheat (1915) during the day while directing the re-shoots of this movie at night.

According to the American Film Institute Catalog of Feature Films 1911-1920, at the end of the film, "Mary quickly marries him [i.e. Roger]" This leads one to believe that the surviving print is missing the final sequence, because, at the final fade-out, there is an implication that, now that Mary's husband is dead, she and Roger will get together, but no more. Actually. DeMille wisely left the outcome of their relationship up to the viewer's imagination. This can be confirmed by the original musical cue sheets which also survive, and the music ends just exactly where the film now ends.
