Several cast members in studio records/casting call lists did not appear or were not identifiable in the movie. These were (with their character names): William 'Billy' Benedict (Hotel Bellboy), Ruth Donnelly (Marina), Sarah Edwards (Old Dowager), Tom Herbert (Throat Specialist in Theatre), Hector Sarno (Italian Proprietor), Lee Phelps (Ghita's Chauffeur) and Hank Mann (Bartender). Since the film is listed as a 10-reel movie, there must have been extensive cutting to pare it down to the final 79 minutes, which would normally require only 8 reels. See more »
Lawrence Tibbett's penultimate film. Oscar-nominated star of early talkies and 30s films is almost forgotten now. Good little film with terrific cast. Virginia Bruce, Alice Brady, Cesar Romero, Jane Darwell, Jessie Ralph, George Marion, Luis Alberni, Walter Brennan, Thurston Hall, Etienne Girardot, Mary Gordon are all familiar faces. Tibbett plays struggling singer who breaks free from dominating star, Brady. Several good arias and some nice cinematography. And it's not often you hear anyone referred to as "monkey wrench girl!"
