Trivia

A Jewel Production. Universal, not owning a proprietary theater chain, devised a 3-tiered branding system for marketing its feature product to independent theater owners: Red Feather (low-budget programmers), Bluebird (mainstream releases), and Jewel (prestige productions). Jewels were often promoted as special engagements in hopes of commanding higher roadshow ticket prices. Universal ended its branding system in late 1929. See more »

wonderful story, great stunts....
5 March 2006 | by (Atwater, USA) – See all my reviews

At a time when action is all EFFECT by some computer, this old time movie had both contrived action as well as REAL stunts done by BRAVE people who might have DIED performing them.

In a safe Hollywood where the real world is slaughtering each other with NO regard for human rights to life, the old style made movies where life could be lost in the making of the movie.

Further the story line and the characters are all plausible and endearing in their enactment.

I recommend this movie for the aficionado's of silent film. The side character of a soldier who is befriended by the hero, then helps the hero is well done as well. It is a rousing example of movies the way movies should be made once in a while:

ENTERTAINING.
