Trivia

A B&W print exists (minus the 2-strip Technicolor sequences). A spectacular follies number, running 597 ft. of the original footage (5828 ft.) was filmed in 2-strip Technicolor, opened the film as originally presented, but no longer survives. See more »

Alternate Versions

The director's cut is 74 minutes long, as reported by the magazine 'Variety' at the premiere. The length of 1776 meters, as reported in imdb (June 2009), which confers with the 65 minutes' running time of most extant copies, that entirely cut out the artist Norma Shearer, and reduced others to the point of not being discernible, like Eddie Cantor and Will Rogers.

I can only saw this much
29 May 2003 | by ifeelpretty17See all my reviews

I only saw about two minutes combined of this movie.It was part of the "MGM comedy parade",but with what I did see,I COULD NOT believe that that was Joan Crawford.The narrator said about her"There she is folks,Joan Crawford.Big eyes and beautiful".To be honest,I thought it was kind of hippocritical for her to be commenting on Bette Davis' "Bug eyes",when her she has bulgy eyes herself. The movie's about a bunch of show girls......well,that's all I could muster.But Joan was SMILING,and she looked quite cute when the camera closed in on her.Dare I say it,she looked INNOCENT,and childlike in a way.Kind of reminded me of Louise Brooks. Barely recognisable,really.Didn't look like the "Mildred Fierce" we all know and love.
