In her 1983 documentary on Max Linder, "The Man in the Silk Hat", Maud Linder says of Max Linder's rarely-found final feature film
(made in Austria): "Nothing remains of this great film but a few stills and scraps of footage, unscreenable today". Fortunately, more of the
film was later found.
Although most profiles of Linder's career sketch a portrait of post-war decline until the end, his final feature film rebuts those claims.
The film was so successful that it was remade in 1937 and 1957.
