Trivia

When originally released, the first reel, which runs approximately seven minutes, including the title credits, was in 2-strip Magnacolor; reviewers at the time commented on the poor quality of the color, registration problems, and lack of focus; in surviving prints, this sequence is in black and white, with a replaced title card that includes a 1951 copyright statement.

Watchable Monogram Programmer
6 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is a short trifle, running barely one hour. Fifi D'Orsay was primarily a supporting player, but here she is given the star treatment by poverty-row studio Monogram. She is cute and sings well. Her acting is okay, too. The opening of the film is from a Calgary rodeo from the early thirties. This was originally shown in Magnacolor but existing prints are black-and-white. The chorus numbers are lifted from 1929's The Great Gabbo, re-scored with different music. The story starts out as a comedy, but the second half becomes more of a melodramatic story of the machinations of show-biz types. The final result is a watchable programmer that will pass the short running time pleasantly enough.
