Movie Trivia - What film first used the word "damn"?

I don't know the answer, but I'd like to know. Apparently it's not Gone with Wind. So does anyone know?

If you count silents, it was used a few times. But maybe this is a bit more definitive:

http://www.filmsite.org/gone.html

Rhett's last words in the novel: "My dear, I don't give a damn." In the film: "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn." [Contrary to popular belief, it was not the film with the first use of the word 'damn' (the expletive had been said by two characters in Pygmalion (1938) and had also been spoken in Alice Adams (1935))

Nice.

And apparently, if I like that movie, I'd also like Legally Blonde, Willow, and The Berenstain Bears' Christmas Tree.

if you go out and buy "hells angels" from 1930, there are a few damns and even a jesus christ and a son of a bitch during the flying scenes at the end of the movie.
