Trivia

A Jewel Production. Universal, not owning its own theater network, devised a 3-tiered branding system to identify and sell its product: Red Feather (low budget programmers), Bluebird (mainstream releases) and Jewel (prestige pictures produced to potentially command higher roadshow ticket prices). This branding system would fade away by late 1929. See more »
