This 1918 silent drama was produced by the Yorke Film Corporation, starring Harold Lockwood. The survival status of Broadway Bill is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film and all I can offer the reader is this brief film synopsis.
"Broadway Bill" Clayton ( Harold Lockwood ), a New York playboy and heavy drinker, takes a job at the Maine lumber camp of John Underwood ( W. W. Black ) hoping to reform himself and regain the affections of Muriel Latham ( Martha Mansfield ). Foreman Buck Hardigan ( Stanton Heck ), who has been stealing and selling Underwood's maple syrup, suspects that Bill has been sent as a spy and decides to get rid of him. Bill survives several plots on his life and finally defeats Buck in a fight and is elected foreman. His struggle with alcohol is nearly won, but when he reads a newspaper item erroneously stating that Muriel is engaged to another, he decides to drink again. Muriel visits the camp with Underwood, and everything is cleared up after Bill rescues her brother Jack ( Cornish Beck ) in a snow storm.
