| Ravishing Norman Kerry!
I don't usually write reviews, but I felt this was necessary... I'm a sucker for early sound movies, even more if they were shot in color... but (and it's a big one): If we are "lucky" enough to have a 1931 Cinecolor movie surviving and available for purchase, why does it have to be in so bad a condition??? The Alpha Video copy has the color so washed out that you almost wish it was shot in black and white: PLEASE let's all remember that even if only few care about these films, they ARE part of our history!

The movie could have been really entertaining if only the dubbing wasn't so bad: I understand Norman Kerry, a huge silent star, had quite a squeaky voice (as heard in "Air Eagles), but still I would have liked it better with his original voice! Carmelita Geraghty is mostly in the background and does not bring much to the movie... It's anyways of some interest to watch her in color (or what's left of it).

My rating is basically for Norman Kerry and could have been higher if the copy was a better one and if he wasn't dubbed.

By the way, anyone knows if the movie was dubbed for the theaters or if the new voices came later (for TV maybe)?
