This film is one of over 200 titles in the list of independent feature films made available for television presentation by Advance Television Pictures announced in Motion Picture Herald 4 April 1942.

It's earliest documented post-WWII telecasts took place in Washington DC Wednesday 5 November 1947 on WTTG (Channel 5), in New York City Friday 31 December 1948 on WATV (Channel 13), and in Los Angeles Tuesday 20 December 1949 on KLAC (Channel 13).
