Trivia

3895 feet (about 40% of its total) was filmed in 2-strip Technicolor and consisted of two stage productions, the first running 8 minutes, and the second running 33 minutes. In the second, Bernice Claire and Alexander Gray travel to Mars in a futuristic rocket ship and dance with a chorus of Martians. These stage numbers were projected in wide screen Magnascope at its New York City premiere at the Strand Theatre. See more »

A lost film for which only the sound to the trailer survives.
26 October 2013 | by bbmtwistSee all my reviews

It's impossible to review this film as it no longer exists. It was one of five co-starring Bereneice Claire and Alexander Gray (the MacDonald and Eddy of early musicals). The Vitaphone disc which encompasses the sound to the trailer does exist and rather than show portions of the film, the performers are simply introduced to the audience and the film described.

Gray and Claire's other lost film, THE SONG OF THE FLAME, does exist as six of the Vitaphone sound reels and was Oscar nominated for Sound - deservedly from the quality of the discs which I have heard.

Gray only made 10 films and Claire only 13. It's sad that two of them are lost.
