A contemporary review in the trade paper "Harrison's Reports" criticised the product placement of the logo of Red Crown Gasoline, which is clearly shown in the film. This is believed to be the earliest extant example of a critical review of product placement in movie history,. Although not mentioned in the review, the film also prominently displays signs for Zeroline oils and greases which, along with Red Crown Gasoline, were all manufactured by the Standard Oil Company.
