Trivia

For many years, this film was presumed lost, since only Vitaphone discs seemed to survive. In the late 1949s and 1950s, Warner Bros. destroyed many of its negatives due to nitrate film decomposition. Studio records indicate that the negative of filmography pre-1931 was marked "Junked 12/27/48" (December 27, 1948); however, a B&W nitrate duplicate negative survives at the UCLA Film and Television Archive. In February 1956, Jack Warner sold the rights to all of his pre-December 1949 films to Associated Artists Productions for television distribution but this title was not included, quite possibly because of legal entanglements resulting from either literary and/or musical rights. So, at this point, it's a question of legalities before the surviving B&W version can be publicly shown once again. See more »

All Talking All Color 1930 Vitaphone Musical Comedy
27 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

The film elements of this early Technicolor musical no longer exists. The Vitaphone disks, which I have heard, preserve the soundtrack. The musical numbers are great especially the number "When The Little Red Roses Get The Blues For You" which is played several times throughout the picture. The love story between Georges Carpentier and Sally O'Neill is secondary to the hilarious antics of the comedy duo, Winnie Lightner and Joe E. Brown. This picture was adapted from the stage musical of the same name by B. G. DeSylva and John McGowan. Only one song from the stage show remained: "You're The Cream In My Coffee." Dublin and Burke provided the great new songs for the Vitaphone production.
