Trivia

A Bluebird Production. Universal, lacking its own theater chain, devised a 3-tiered branding system to market its features to independent theater owners: Red Feather (low-budget programmers), Bluebird (mainstream releases) and Jewel (prestige pictures made to command higher roadshow ticket prices). The studio would discontinue this marketing method in late 1929. See more »

Another odd film
4 October 2000 | by (Cambridge, England) – See all my reviews

I liked this film, despite it's crippling age and obviously lame acting. For starters, it's called Shoes, and that's reason enough to recommend any film. It's quite a heartwarming tale too, and even my tattooed heart of lead melted a bit at it's touching scenes. A remake of this would be worryingly irrelevant now, as shoes aren't such a luxury purchase nowadays, but with a bit of reworking, this early classic could easily rake in money for some feckless student layabout.
