This film has been restored by the BIG with the aid of a National Lottery Grant.What has made this quite difficult is that there was only one extant print and that was well worn from its use as a release print.They have been able to do a good job of the picture.However it is clear that the soundtrack was a major problem as it is quite indistinct in places.So they have decided to subtitle the whole film.The content of the film is unremarkable but it is notable for the assured performance of Madelaine Carroll,who was already an experienced actress.She appeared in 7 films in 1930.Little surprise that she and flower seller Merle Oberon went on to be Hollywood stars.
