The film contains the largest number of costume changes by one performer (50) in any silent film. Coincidentally, the largest number of costume changes by a single performer in any film was Elizabeth Taylor 's 65 in Cleopatra (1963) .
The last two known prints were destroyed in fires at the Fox studios and at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
According to the studio, this film cost $500,000 to produce and 2,000 people were employed behind the scenes.
A few feet of this film were turned over to the George Eastman House by a private collector.
Even though a print of the film did not exist, this was the version that 20th Century-Fox was inspired to remake in 1958, the result being Cleopatra (1963) starring Elizabeth Taylor. Producer Walter Wanger was handed a parched script of the original film and told to update it and immediately go into production.
