- This was 劳伦斯·奥利弗's first acting role in a film that he did not direct since 半天堂 (1943).
- William Friese-Greene's son Claude Friese-Greene continued to develop his father's color process and produced a series of color travelogues of Britain in the 1920s. These never achieved contemporary commercial success, but formed the basis of a very popular three-part BBC Television broadcast The Lost World of Friese-Greene (2006), after being preserved by the British Film Institute.
- One of the extras in this movie is a teenage Ronald Kray (later the infamous London gangster).
