The gossip columnist Louella Parsons insisted on seeing the film at a private showing before its official opening and arrived at RKO Studios accompanied by her chauffeur. Before the film was half-over, Parsons, realising it was a veiled and highly critical portrait of her boss, William Randolph Hearst, stormed out of the projection room. Her chauffeur, however, insisted on staying to the end, and, on leaving, was heard to say, "Very good picture!" in a most enthusiastic tone.
