One of the most prolific directors in Hollywood history, William Beaudine began his career as an actor in 1909 before he directed his first short movie at the age of 23 in 1915 (the same year The Birth of a Nation – which he worked on as an assistant director – was released). After moving to directing feature length films full time in 1922, he soon earned a reputation for being economical in his films – often out of necessity – and for working in many genres, often for low budget Poverty Row studios.

I got a kick out of spotting Marion Byron as one of the card-players that Stu Erwin encounters at the girls school, recalling that Erwin and Byron were paired up in the classic Hal Roach comedy "A Pair of Tights" (1929) four years earlier.

Really nice print of this, and I'm very glad Kino put it out.
