One of over 700 Paramount Productions, filmed between 1929 and 1949, which were sold to MCA/Universal in 1958 for television distribution, and have been owned and controlled by Universal ever since. Because of sponsor resistance to its age and depression themed pre-code aspects of its story, it was rarely taken off the shelf. Two of its earliest documented airings took place in Hartford, Connecticut Saturday 21 October 1961 on Gems of the Silver Screen on WHCT (Channel 18) and in Indianapolis, Indiana Tuesday 19 December 1961 on Mid-Day Matinee on WFBM (Channel 6). It was released on DVD 7 April 2009 as part of the Universal Backlot Series: Pre-Code Hollywood Collection, and again as a single 5 August 2014 as part of the Universal Vault Series.
