Hedda Hopper reflecting back on the making of this film stated that Billie Burke always wanted a dressing room to herself and was reluctant to change clothing with the other female cast members. Hopper seemed to not understand (or perhaps was jealous) that Burke was the star of the film (as well as a star on Broadway) and was due the personal dressing room accorded a star.[6]
