- Jossed: The costs of this film were listed as "over $2 million" for years until Douglas Fairbanks's biographer discovered in 2008 that the cost was just over $1 million.
- Star-Making Role: Anna May Wong became a household name with this film. Unfortunately it led to her being typecast as a Dragon Lady for several years.
- Trolling Creator: Several prints credit Mathilde Comont as 'M Comont' in order to disguise her gender from the audience.
- Underage Casting: Children play the guards in scenes with the giant ape - but adults are used in the shots when the ape is off camera - in order to make it look bigger.
