At least one scene survives.
2 August 2005 | by nlangdonSee all my reviews

The film may be lost but one production number, the title track, survives. It was accidentally edited into Vivian Duncan's private print of IT'S A GREAT LIFE (MGM 1929) and has made the rounds on video through various collectors. The color has held up well but the production values are rather like a big studio's B picture. It would be interesting to see what the film was like in it's entirety. I can't imagine Leo McCarey directing a bomb so I imagine it was a decent little film. At 75 minutes it was quite short by modern standards, although Mae West's SHE DONE HIM WRONG was only 66 minutes and there's no arguing over it's place in movie history.
