What is that cover image? Everyone asks.
Answer: Dedication of 'Park Row' (MVTN 0-282), a curious newsreel fragment from the Fox Movietone News Collection at the University of South Carolina (now part of a USC unit called Moving Image Research Collections). That's a faux Trotsky at the mike, being played by Boris Charsky, whose brief Hollywood career included a role in Raoul Walsh's film The Red Dance. A good, old-fashioned publicity stunt, this piece with "Leon Trotsky of the Soviet Republic" was recorded January 27, 1928, on the Fox lot in Hollywood. The Red Dance was not in general release until December, although it had a New York premiere in June. Like most all "Movietoned" films of 1928, it had both silent prints and part-sound prints in circulation simultaneously.
The AFI Catalog indicates that a song was included on the soundtrack of The Red Dance: "Someday, Somewhere (We'll Meet Again)," with music by Erno Rapée. A YouTuber posted his 78rpm record (Conquerer 7138, recorded Aug. 19, 1928) of "Someday, Somewhere" by a group called the Dixie Marimba Players -- since deleted. (But one must love one's arrangement featuring xylophone, Hawaiian guitar, and celeste, mustn't one?!)
