The producers (the Kalem Company) of this lost movie did some unusual exterior shooting (for the times) at Cos Cob, Conn. Despite its visual effects and an accompanying lecture on the play, the production was not widely acclaimed. "Kalem" was an acronym for the New York City movie company's partners: George Kleine, Samuel Long, and Frank Marion
