Remarks and general Information in German: Es ist nicht klar, ob der Film auf einer Kurzgeschichte von James Oliver Curwood basiert oder nur durch Szenen von Curwood angeregt wurde. In "Camera!" ist es "Story by James Oliver Curwood, eminent writer of novels and magazine stories pertraining to life in the Canadian Northwest - Adapated to the screen by allen J. Holubar" (Camera!, November 8, 1919, pg 10) Motion Picture News nennt es "Suggested by James Oliver Curwood story." (July 12, 1919, pg 593). Im gleichen Artikel wird auch das Release Datum 6. July 1919 genannt, in den Charts findet sich allerdings das Datum 1. September 1919, und die erste Kinovorstellung lässt sich erst für den 30. November 1919 in New York nachweisen. Andererseits erschien eine erste Kritik zum Film in Motion Picture News bereits am 6. April 1918 !
Die Vermutung liegt nahe, dass der Film bereits anfangs 1918 gedreht wurde, der Start dann aber wegen des Einsatzes anderer Phillips-Holubar Filme stets herausgeschoben wurde. In Belgien wurde der Film unter dem Titel "Vendue" in in Holland unter dem Titel "Verkocht" gezeigt. (lhg 2019)
