Trivia

After its release, the original nitrate negative and fine grain prints were given to Mary Roberts Rinehart. She had a 16mm safety print made from the 35mm negative so she could see the film and then junked the negative. Over the years, it was believed that only her 16mm print had survived, but in fact the studio's 35mm print was safely stored at the UCLA Film and Television Archive, which used it to preserve the film in 2016.

Only diehard Cooper and Lombard fans should watch
3 November 2018 | by ClaudetteColbertFanSee all my reviews

Because of the two leads, I had to watch this film. Boy was I disappointed. Many awkward silences in this early talkie. Had this been made a decade later with both leads, I imagine it would have been better made since both made better films later in their careers.
