sued to have his name restored to the film's credits, and won.

Great cost was afforded to make a sanitary of mosquito-proofing over a
section of Kingston, Jamaica. Sets consumed 2,500 barrels (400 m3) of
plaster, 500 barrels (79 m3) of cement, 2,000,000 board feet (5,000 m3) of
lumber, and ten tons of paper. Director Herbert Brenon employed 20,000
people during the eight months of production and used 220,000 feet (67,000
