This movie is one of a set of six films owned by the estate of Merian C. Cooper, and the rights to show it were caught up in legal red tape. TCM eventually acquired the rights and showed the movie in May 2007. See more »

This is a really disappointing movie by highly talented Wiliam Wellman,compared with magnificent works such as "wild boys of the road" "heroes for sale" or "the conquerors",the latter also featuring Richard Dix (playing two parts in the same final scenes!) .
This far fetched story of a bandit with a big heart who helps his protégée ,a servant,to become a great diva ,is not convincing:the ending is very romantic but might disappoint the audience who might call for more .
On stage ,the diva performs the Castafiore 's biggest hit (see "the adventures of Tin Tin")in French ,Gounod's "Air Des Bijoux " (Ah!Je Ris De me Voir Si belle En Ce Miroir =Ah my beauty past compare.....) Half melodrama ,Irene Dunne's field ,half musical (there are plenty of songs),"Stingaree" should be reserved for Wellman's buffs ,but there are plenty of them,including myself.
