Did You Know?


A Jewel Production. Unlike most of its competitors, Universal did not own a theater chain and in an effort to market its feature product to independent theater owners, devised a 3-tiered marketing system: Red Feather (low budget programmers), Bluebird (mainstream releases) and Jewel (prestige productions). Jewel releases were sold as candidates for special promotions, often commanding higher roadshow ticket prices. Universal would cease this branding system in late 1929. See more »


During the climactic fire sequence at the end of the film, the fire is intercut with footage of horse-drawn fire trucks racing to the rescue. The footage of the fire trucks is clearly footage shot during the day, but the fire takes place at night. See more »

What was ours is ours again
13 November 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

No, this lost film has not mysteriously turned up in a meat locker in Alice Springs, a barn in the Faroes Islands nor even in the Gosfilmfond Archives, where a mutilated version was used to educate good Communists on how capitalists try to burn up small babies for profit. Tom Stathes found a Kodascope copy of the last reel at a flea market.

There was an exciting escape from a fire, some recovered smuggled diamonds and an opportunity for Max Davidson to do some of his lovely pained reaction takes. It looks like a good production and Baby Peggy -- who is still alive and well as of the writing of this review -- remembers the shooting of the fire scene and her uinwillingness, despite the urgings of the director and her father, to go through the fire. She may have been young, but she was no fool.

So keep on going to those garage sales nd flea markets, folks. There are lots of things still missing and maybe we can find them yet.
