Trivia

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 »

A backstage curiosity
5 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A curiosity primarily for the array of character actors (Walter Brennan, Jane Darwell, Alice Brady, Jesse Ralph). The usual backstage clichés: rehearsal begins with full costumes, sets and orchestra. The backstage area is spacious and well-lighted. And the show goes on in spite of the temperamental leading lady. One of the rare film opportunities to see Lawrence Tibbett. He sings extensive operatic excerpts, and it's not as stagy as one might expect for early filmed opera. This was filmed during the peak period of his career. Sadly, as his voice declined, he faded into alcohol abuse, arrests, and a life-ending fall.
