Harry Baur later reprised his role as Peter Brioukow in the English language remake I Stand Condemned (1935).

The film takes place in 1916.

Henry Koster wrote the screenplay in Paris in 1933. He was unable to write under his own name because of the existing rules of the French writer's union, so he wrote with a nom de plume. He only received credit for this and other films written in 1933 in Paris after World War II.
