Trivia

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.

Lost film but soundtrack exists in fragments
31 July 2002 | by (Putney, VT) – See all my reviews

This film is considered to be lost - it was nominated for an Oscar for sound

  • but there is only an unconfirmed rumor that it exists on laserdisc at


UCLA. Five sound reels do exist - #1,4,6,7,9. These have been transferred from the original vitaphone discs that accompanied the film.
