A lost film for which only the sound to the trailer survives.
26 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's impossible to review this film as it no longer exists. It was one of five co-starring Bereneice Claire and Alexander Gray (the MacDonald and Eddy of early musicals). The Vitaphone disc which encompasses the sound to the trailer does exist and rather than show portions of the film, the performers are simply introduced to the audience and the film described.

Gray and Claire's other lost film, THE SONG OF THE FLAME, does exist as six of the Vitaphone sound reels and was Oscar nominated for Sound - deservedly from the quality of the discs which I have heard.

Gray only made 10 films and Claire only 13. It's sad that two of them are lost.
