Following a disagreement with Metro about production costs, Capellani left the company for good in spite of the huge success of The Red Lantern. He decided to become an independent producer himself. Albert Capellani Productions started in 1919 with an innovative “filmusical-comedy” after P. G. Wodehouse, Oh Boy! Capellani produced eight features, but the company encountered severe financial difficulties following the destruction of the studio laboratory. By 1920, the company was dead, and Capellani had to sign a contract with Cosmopolitan Productions, headed by William Randolph Hearst.
