Sadly it was the last of the so-called ‘Silent Musicals’ because as soon as the talkies came in audiences wanted to hear people actually singing. A very promising young actor called John Wayne never worked again because he couldn’t hold a tune. If truth be told Over The Top! wasn’t a hard shoot. We filmed it all in a studio one June morning, and the action scenes were taken from old newsreel footage and cut in later.
