Did You Know?


In September 1928, Warner Bros. Pictures purchased a majority interest in First National Pictures and from that point on, all "First National" productions were actually made under Warner Bros. control, even though the two companies continued to retain separate identities until the mid-1930's, after which time "A Warner Bros.-First National Picture" was often used.

Lost Early Talkie
24 April 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Lady Helen Haden ( Billie Dove ), an Englishwoman married to a boor, falls in love with Ned Thayer ( Walter Pidgeon ), an American. The discovery that Thayer has cheated at cards leads to blackmail and an ugly divorce for Lady Haden. She goes to America alone and pawns her jewels to survive there. When wealthy American Rudolph Solomon ( Holmes Herbert ) proposes, Lady Haden accepts, although she still loves Thayer. Solomon steps aside for Thayer, his employee, when Lady Haden learns that Thayer's sister, Mrs. Leslie ( Thelma Todd ), not he, cheated at cards.

This 1929 drama was based from the novel Déclassée by Zoë Akins, directed by Alexander Korda for First National Pictures. A full-sound film with a silent version, it starred Billie Dove, Walter Pidgeon, Holmes Herbert, Montagu Love, Thelma Todd and ZaSu Pitts. Tragically due to nitrate film decomposition, it was destroyed in 1948 and remains a lost film.
