This film was also known as Hunting Trouble, The Trouble Hunter and The Romantic Meddler during its production. Several contemporary sources list July 25, 1920 as its release date, but reviews did not appear until September 1920. The actor Norman Selby, also known as Kid McCoy, was the former middleweight boxing champion. Paramount studio records list Helen Dunbar in the role of Mrs. Tidmarsh, but all contemporary reviews credit Sylvia Ashton with the role. Contemporary reviews also differ from Paramount records in listing character names as Major McDowell instead of Major MacDonald, Mrs. McDowell instead of Mrs. MacDonald, and Monk Brady instead of Deacon. Anstey's play was filmed twice again: in 1930 by Warner Bros. as The Man from Blankley's, with John Barrymore and Loretta Young starring and Alfred E. Green directing (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1921-30; F2.3370); and in 1934 in Great Britain as Guest of Honour, with George King directing.
