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. At this time, television broadcasting was in its infancy, almost totally curtailed by the advent of World War II, and would not continue to develop until 1945-1946. Because of poor documentation (feature films were often not identified by title in conventional sources) no record has yet been found of its initial television broadcast. It's earliest documented telecast took place in New York City Sunday 3 October 1948 on WATV (Channel 13); it first aired in Atlanta Tuesday 3 January 1950 on WSB (Channel 8), in Los Angeles Sunday 12 March 1950 on KECA (Channel 7), and in Cincinnati Wednesday 13 September 1950 on WKRC (Channel 11).
