Trivia
The film was based on a notorious novel called 'The Green Hat' but the Hays Office wouldn't allow the book to be filmed because it featured the use of heroin and a man kills himself on his wedding night because he's suffering from syphilis, neither of which could be touched on at that time. M.G.M. thought it would be a gold mine once past the censors but by the time the title and character names had been changed and the story line altered it bore little resemblance to the book. The bridegroom now kills himself because of his embezzling. While drinking on screen was forbidden because of prohibition Jeffry's hardly seen without a whisky glass in his hand but the fact that drink finally kills him plus the fact that the film was set in England is probably what persuaded the censors let that by.
