Only the complete soundtrack survives
2 December 2018 | by bbmtwistSee all my reviews

Wonder of Women, nominated for an Oscar for Best Screenplay in the second year of the Academy's existence, was for many years believed to be a lost film. About a decade ago the complete soundtrack on Vitaphone discs was reported to be housed at UCLA Archives. It is not known if these have been recorded on tape and are available for public film research.
