This is RKO's first sound musical. It centers on a pair of vaudevillians who are quite close on and off the stage until a dashing millionaire comes around and begins wooing the female partner.
Did You Know?
Released as a "Radio Picture" during the period when FBO was transforming into Radio-Keith-Orpheum (RKO). A sizable hit, this was the first commercial test of RCA's Photophone sound system, which was the reason for RCA's hefty financial interest in RKO. The first "official" RKO production would be their next release, Street Girl
(1929). See more
