Shadows of Glory (Spanish:Sombras de gloria) is a Spanish-language American film released in 1930. It was produced by Sono Art-World Wide Pictures to serve as an alternate-language version of their English-language release Blaze o' Glory (1929). It was the first foreign-language sound film produced in the United States.[1]


Sombras de gloria, like Blaze o' Glory, takes its premise from the story The Long Shot by Thomas Alexander Boyd. It is part war movie, part courtroom drama.


Production and distribution[edit]

According to modern web sources, Sombras de gloria was shot at Metropolitan Studios in Hollywood in October 1929. The premiere took place at the studio on January 25, 1930.[2] The film opened to the general public in the United States five days later.[3] It is not presently available in DVD.
