Sombras de Gloria is the Spanish-language version of the offbeat American musical comedy-drama Blaze o' Glory. Replacing Eddie Dowling and Betty Compson, the stars of the original film, are Argentina's Jose Bohr and North American-born Mona Rico. The plot remains the same, with WWI hero Bohr trying to defend himself on the charge of murdering a former wartime enemy. Once again, the courtroom turns into a cabaret, with Bohr's sweetheart and friends offering musical numbers in lieu of testimony. And once again, logic and continuity are never taken into consideration. Credited as director for Sombras de Gloria is Hollywood's Andrew Stone, who went on to produce and direct such "actuality" films as The Last Voyage (1960) and Ring of Fire (1961), and who late in life returned to the musical genre with Song of Norway (1969).
