A Jewel Production. Universal, not owning a theater chain, devised a 3-tiered brand system that helped it market its feature product to independent theater owners: Red Feather (low-budget), Bluebird (mainstream releases) and Jewel (prestige productions). Jewels would often receive special promotion and be marketed with an eye for higher roadshow ticket prices. The studio would cease this brand-driven marketing system in late 1929. See more
