The film was censored during production as well as on initial release, well detailed in the commentary. The 1935 reissue was heavily censored, reducing the running time to about 82 minutes. As MGM suppressed the film for 25 years when they purchased the rights for their 1941 remake, the missing footage was not restored until relatively recently. It is believed that about two and a half minutes are still missing. The version included on this disc is the longest version in existence.
