Storyline

Eddie Haskins, a wisecracking young man, teams up with two ham-acrobats known as 'Bugs & Sunny', and ,when they are all kicked out of a vaudeville theater in California, they enlist in the U. S. Cavalry. Eddie falls in love with Dorothy Clark, the daughter of a sergeant and, following a moonlight tryst, they are discovered by Sergeant Hank Darby who himself is in love with Dorothy. They have a fist-fight in which Eddie comes out second best. When Darby is reprimanded for fighting with an enlisted man, the troopers incorrectly think that Eddie squealed on him, and they punish him with a conspiracy of silence. Dorothy also rejects him. Eddie has a problem. Maybe a fire will break out in the stables and he can rescue Sergeant Darby. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

I only have a lobby card for this film.
12 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The information contained in it is: -"an ALL TALKING production recorded by RCA Photophone" -"Tiffany Production" -the still is hand colored in the foreground with Lease and Gulliver seated in a railroad passenger car; they face the camera with Lease (on Gulliver's right) playing a ukulele and presumably singing.

I wonder if any soundtrack disks were made for this film and survive. It's my understanding that a majority of theaters wired for sound circa 1930 could only accommodate the disk method. Optical tracks were dubbed in such cases. Victor offered these dubbing services. I've examined some 12" pressings in "Victrolac" (Victor's name for the flexible plastic). They were typically cut at lower levels than their 16" (typically shellac) counterparts. Thusly they were able to reduce the land between the grooves and therefore accommodated a full reel's soundtrack. Presumably these sonically inferior (due to the lower levels) pressings (as compared to the 16" shellacs) were much less costly to ship (no doubt a concern as the Depression was not yet even bottomed) and certainly, were not as easily broken.

I've provided this additional information to satisfy the minimum ten line requirement so that the details of the card could be shared with you.
