Trivia

This movie was re-released by Astor Pictures in 1943 as "Fight On Marines!" to take advantage of the wartime demand for patriotic subjects, filling the lower half of the double bill in second-run movie houses. This reissue causes a lot of confusion in Toby Wing's career bios as it often credited as a singular 1943 production when it was, in fact a re-issue. Toby's film career ended in 1937, although a couple of her films would be released into 1938. See more »
