A Lost Film: George M. Cohan's last silent film
26 July 2014 | by (California) – See all my reviews

This is a lost film. No known copy exists in archives or private collections.

George M. Cohan made a trio of silent films before returning to Broadway, where he ruled as king. This film is interesting in that it touches on one of the hottest issues of the day: Prohibition.

Religion, alcohol and George M. Cohan? Sounds like a mighty powerful combination. A pity it is considered a missing film.

As this movie is missing and presumed lost, all reviews that purport to be based on a modern viewing must be looked upon with suspicion unless the place, time and circumstances of the viewing is shared.
