Trivia

A part-talkie released at a time when the public was clamoring for sound, this demonstrates the difficulty Carl Laemmle faced in 1929 when he was unable to secure Fox's Movietone sound system on a permanent basis. Often the equipment would be available for a week. Universal spent the year rushing production of their 100% talking pictures, facing the dilemma of releasing their better films in a less desirable part-talking format. See more »

THE LOST ART
19 June 2000 | by (STAVELY AUSTRALIA FLEX) – See all my reviews

Whilst viewing this relic from the silent feature vault i could not help but to think of the now lost art of silent film acting. Without words the actors had to be thespian-plus and gesticulate with machine gun rapidity . A far cry from sly- stallone who also never found the art speaking. This feel good yarn let me down with its predictable finish but the rest packed a punch - on me - and the villian.
