Bronx Biograph studio and laboratory facilities, which was closing its film vault and planning to destroy all the film. Printing of some footage took place in 1976. In October 2014, MOMA presented the unedited film with a lecture about the film's background and reasons for it remaining unfinished.

One of the actors in this film is Bert Williams' friend and collaborator J. Leubrie Hill. He was a songwriter, best remembered for "At the Ball, That's All," to which Laurel & Hardy performed a soft shoe dance in their 1937 film Way Out West.
