Surviving Soundtrack Suggests This May Be A Genuine Loss
18 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A young man, a Broadway star, goes to war. He survives the war -- but can he survive the Peace, when the war has robbed him of his health and his sanity, and all of his hopes that when it all ends, he would go out in a BLAZE O'GLORY?

This movie is lost -- but its soundtrack lives on the internet. Despite some eyebrow rising coincidences in the final reel (and a real jaw dropper at the end), what one hears suggests an effective courtroom drama that has, nonetheless been fused with, of all things, a bleak, antiwar, operetta. I am not sure how all of this would look on film -- since this was released by Sono-Art Worldwide, a penny-pinching Gower Gulch studio. But the frank anti-war slant, a sad Henry B Walthall performance as a defense attorney defending our hero against a murder charge, and the good quality vocalizing by Eddie Dowling, suggest this might have been a film that aged well, even though it was much disliked by critics when released.

Search your attics. There are not a lot of non-comic musical movies from the studio era (some late 40s Warners movies come to mind), and this film's very uniqueness would qualify it for a TCM premiere, should the film elements be found.
