Trivia

In this cut-rate follow-up to Wings (1927), director William A. Wellman was encouraged to maximize his use of stock footage and unused footage from the earlier movie. Studio management then became uneasy at the result, as "Wings" was still on its road show when this film was released, and apparently had some of the stock footage cut. See more »

There is a photoplay book out on this film
6 September 2006 | by (Bloomington IL) – See all my reviews

There is a Grosset and Dunlap book out on this presumably lost Paramount film with six plates which I recently rediscovered in preparation for a garage sale. The frontispiece shows close-up of Fay Wray and a young Gary Cooper. Unfortunately, the nice copy is without its original dust jacket. This book has a 1928 copyright on it and probably was intended to be a promotional title for the marketing of this film which came out while the Wings film was still circulating. Whether this film is truly a lost film, I don't know, but if it is this book with its plates will help to add to the history of this secondary film.
