Blockade was one of those curious 1929 hybrids known as a "part-talkie." Anna Q. Nilsson stars as a dauntless female prohibition agent. In her pursuit of a gang of Florida rum-runners, Nilsson assumes three identities. At various junctures, she is "herself," a society belle and a gangster's moll. Despite her strenuous efforts, Anna Q. Nilsson didn't survive the sound revolution, and by the late 1930s she was relegated to bit parts. Produced by FBO Pictures, Blockade was released in most markets by FBO's successor, RKO Radio.
