Oscar-nominated film exists at UCLA
31 July 2002 | by (Putney, VT) – See all my reviews

This is one of a dozen or so Republic films that seem to exist solely in preservation copy format at UCLA. It was the earliest Republic film to earn an Oscar nomination - for Sound - and UCLA holds two copies, one complete and one missing one reel. It also possesses a single solo reel from another print. It is not available for viewing at this time.
