Due to the success of First National Pictures' Flaming Youth
(1923), which was a cinematic adaptation of a flapper novel by Samuel Hopkins Adams
, the Fox Film Corporation quickly snapped up the film rights to Adams' next popular youth-centric novel, Summer Bachelors
(1926). Using the pseudonym of Warner Fabian, Adams penned a number of salacious novels in the 1920s focusing upon promiscuous flappers and the hedonism of the Jazz Age. Nearly all of these novels were adapted into motion pictures starring Colleen Moore
, Madge Bellamy
, Mary Astor
, and Clara Bow
