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.

Nicely done....
20 May 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. is very good in this romance/war film, playing a man who loves his brother's fiancee. Good cinematography helps put a gossamer glow on this early talkie that also boasts good work by Rose Hobart and Anthony Bushell. It never gets sticky but still manages to show moving relationships between brothers and between Fairbanks (always underrated) and Hobart, who unaccountably sank quickly to second leads. The story may seem a tad dated now, but this old film is definitely worth a look. Mary Forbes is the mother, and I think Ethel Griffies plays the drunken flower seller.
