Steve Maxwell (Fairbanks) and Sue Randall (Day), during an escapade, wreck one of her father's streetcars.

  • Production background

    RKO released The Jazz Age in both a silent and part-talkie version, so the film could be shown in theaters equipped for sound, and for those not equipped for sound. The part-talkie version was recorded in RCA Photophone.

    There was a later documentary film produced by NBC News Project 20, narrated by Fred Allen also titled The Jazz Age (1956), and a 15-episode TV series of the same name on the BBC (1968). Both the IMDB and TCM websites, for the 1929 film, show the 1956 film as available on DVD for purchase. No info is given about the availability of the 1929 title.
