*"The scenario was based on the short story, "Men, Women and Money" by Cosmo Hamilton, which first appeared in the August 1918 Harper's Bazaar. Some sources have claimed that, in addition to writing the original story, Hamilton wrote a short scenario that may have been the basis for shooting script by Beulah Marie Dix. The purchase of motion picture rights by Famous Players-Lasky Corp. (FP-L) was reported in the 14 February 1919 Variety. An article in the 1 March 1919 Moving Picture World noted that the FP-L chose the story as a starring vehicle for Ethel Clayton. Issues 11 and 23 of the March-April 1919 Paramount Press Book Collection included “interpretive” dancer Margaret Loomis among the cast, and later announced the completion of principal photography at Lasky Studios in Hollywood, CA. The title was said to be provisional at the time. Men, Woman and Money was released on 8 June 1919, according to the 21 June 1919 Motion Picture News."
