Trivia

For many years, this film was presumed lost, since only Vitaphone discs seemed to survive. In the late 1949s and 1950s, Warner Bros. destroyed many of its negatives due to nitrate film decomposition. Studio records indicate that the negative of filmography pre-1931 was marked "Junked 12/27/48" (December 27, 1948); however, a B&W nitrate duplicate negative survives at the UCLA Film and Television Archive. In February 1956, Jack Warner sold the rights to all of his pre-December 1949 films to Associated Artists Productions for television distribution but this title was not included, quite possibly because of legal entanglements resulting from either literary and/or musical rights. So, at this point, it's a question of legalities before the surviving B&W version can be publicly shown once again. See more »

No Longer Lost
12 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

For years only the Vitaphone discs were available for this film, but according to the new book The Dawn of Technicolor, a black and white print is extant. This is yet another encouraging recent example of previously missing movies resurfacing, even if not always in their original form. Any fans of Joe E. Brown and Winnie Lightner should be thrilled by this news, particularly since Lightner's film career was relatively short. Originally a Broadway show starring Bert Lahr, this adaptation is a prime showcase for Brown and Lightner, and it was a big success at a time when interest in musicals were waning Hopefully HOLD EVERYTHING will be made available on DVD before long!
