Rare and Bad
30 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Triumph is the story of a woman who wants to become a famous actress. She begins doing local work in parks, but one day gets a break to perform on the stage. She is the new flavor of the week, and a fellow actress recommends that she string along the producer without ever actually giving in to his whims to maintain her status as the number one girl. This backfires when he finds out about her amorous relationship with a struggling writer (Lon Chaney) and her dreams lie on shaky ground.

Very little of this film exists, which could contribute to why it is so hard to watch, but it could also be a blessing in disguise. Better melodramatic tripe like this to be lost than a masterpiece like The Unknown or The Penalty.

I saw what is left of this film screened at Cinevent in 2014 and while I am always glad to see rare films, this one isn't worth reviving.
