Movie Info

This film is a biography of legendary flagmaker Betsy Ross. Inasmuch as the story of Betsy Ross was largely a fabrication to begin with, the screenwriters had no qualms about concocting a romantic triangle involving Betsy, her sister Carissa, and their mutual sweetheart Clarence Vernon.

All Critics (1)

It is a seemly, timely piece about love and patriotism, proceeding with nice discrimination, expressed in fine photography, illuminated throughout by the sparkling Alice Brady.
