Movie Quote(s):
  • Detective Moletti: What's your full name? Lizzie Allen: Lizzie Allen - whether I'm full or not.
  • Detective Moletti: How old are you? Lizzie Allen: Twenty-two. Miss Cornelia Van Gorder: She's forty!
  • Lizzie Allen: That Jap butler gives me the willies. The Flemings through him in with the lease, but I'd throw him OUT!
  • Miss Cornelia Van Gorder: [the lights go out, calling up the stairs] LIZZIE! Lizzie Allen: [with a newspaper in her mouth, swinging a bear trap at the window. Miss Van Gorder comes in and she stops and takes the paper out of her mouth] I see by the paper that the Bat's in the neighborhood. I'm setting a bear trap for him.
Movie Trivia:
  • For many years this was regarded as a "lost film" with no known prints or elements existing.
  • This film was highly regarded for its visuals, especially for its cinematography, elaborate sets and special effects. Roland West could only top it by remaking it four years later as The Bat Whispers (1930) with sound and in an early 70mm process.
  • Filming took place almost entirely at night.
