The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

While the exact time frame of the movie is unclear, at 22:16 a portrait of Theodore Roosevelt is seen on the wall over Eleanor's left shoulder. Roosevelt served as U.S. President from 1901 to 1909 meaning the film takes place within the first decade of the turn of the century.
