Trivia

A Bluebird Production. Unlike many other major studios, Universal did not own a theater network and devised a 3-tiered branding system to sell its product to independent theater owners: Red Feather (low-budget programmers), Bluebird (mainstream releases) and Jewel (prestige pictures designed to draw higher roadshow ticket prices). This branding system would cease by late 1929. See more »
