Excited!
15 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hello all, I'm finding out new information about my great, great uncle George Hadden! He's listed as the main director of this film! Would love to see this movie but I've read the other reviews & see that it's lost.

I have a photo of the cast of this movie along with another photo of some of the cast of his other movie "Cavalcade" which I do own and it is wonderful! The special effects are incredible for 1933! I've gone ahead & rated Charlie Chan's Courage as "excellent", I suppose because I'm partial! : ) I'm going to see if I can at least get the movie poster! My uncle also has another movie I've found by the name of "Pleasure Cruise" so I'm off to see what else I can find out!!
