Complete soundtrack exists on disc but film is "LOST."
MGM archives contain the entire film soundtrack on disc (this was before the days of sound on film), but no negative or positive visual materials are known to exist. One can guage Metropolitan Opera star Lawrence Tibbett's Oscar-nominated performance from the sound materials and he does give a sonorous , robust and natural performance. Songs are well done - there is much tongue in cheek - and even a brief appearance by Laurel and Hardy. A 45 minute LP was issued in the 1970s on an obscure label with selections from the film soundtrack for those intrepid collectors out there.
