A silent film?[edit]

This film is not silent at all. In fact, it was applauded for being one of the finest of the early "talkies". Someone need to update the page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 202.173.169.47 (talkcontribs) 07:25, November 2, 2010

Actually it was not a "talkie", but rather a silent film with a pre-recorded soundtrack of music and some sound effects. BUt as with other silent films, it used intertitle cards to display dialog to viewers. True talkies were on their way, but had not quite yet arrived. Schmidt, MICHAEL Q. 04:13, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

Selznick leaves[edit]

At the close of the article it's stated that David Selznick left MGM over a dispute with Hunt Stromberg about this film. I didn't know David had anything to do with this film. Was David at MGM at this time? He would however be answerable to LB Mayer himself and would soon become Mayer's son-in-law.Koplimek (talk) 16:49, 8 June 2012 (UTC)
