This film was presumed lost for 90 years until 2010 when a print was returned to the United States from Russia's Gosfilmofond archive. Flash titles were in the Russian language.[3] In 2022 Edward Lorusso translated the Russian titles and produced the film for DVD release with a new music score by David Drazin.
