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.

in her first all-talkie film is ok but miscast as the English rose who loses her violinist husband (Basil Rathbone) to a predatory womn (Kay Francis, who steals the film). Billie Dove tries hard and her acting isn't really bad, but the accent comes and goes. At one point she mentions something as being "versa-till" which doesn't sound all that British. Kay Francis is fun as the sexual predator and looks as gorgeous as Dove. Dove's talkie career lasted only a few years and consisted of about 10 films. She's much better (in a supporting role) in 1932's "Blondie of the Follies" with pal Marion Davies.
