This Is Heaven (1929) is an American Pre-Code film, produced by Samuel Goldwyn, released through United Artists, and directed by Alfred Santell.

Production background[edit]

This film was released in both silent and sound versions.[1]

Uncertain about the future of sound films, believing that his product should either be all-talking or all-silent. With Vilma Bánky less than diligent about her vocal lessons, Goldwyn inserted three talking sequences into this silent picture then sat on the film for several months. His instincts proved correct: the box office didn't like it much either.[2] Bánky would make only three more films.
