Shadows of Glory (Spanish:Sombras de gloria) is a pre-Code Spanish-language American film released in 1930. It was produced by Sono Art-World Wide Pictures to serve as an alternate-language version of their English-language release Blaze o' Glory (1929). It was the first foreign-language sound film produced in the United States.[1]


Sombras de gloria, like Blaze o' Glory, takes its premise from the story The Long Shot by Thomas Alexander Boyd. It is part war movie, part courtroom drama.
