Across the Divide (1921) - Lost Silent ?
1 October 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Wallace Layson ( Ralph Fee McCullough ), left by his dying mother in the care of Kenneth " Buck " Layson ( Rex Ballard ), a half-breed, has no knowledge of his true identity. Layson's father returns to cheat his own son out of a ranch, which he will inherit on his twenty-first birthday, and induces Rosa ( Rosemary Theby ), a dance-hall girl, to marry young Layson, who is in love with Helen ( Dorothy Manners ). Buck tells him that the real heir has died and persuades him to pose as the heir, thus foiling the plans of his father and securing a home for young Layson and Helen. Buck then reveals the boy's identity and departs without revealing that he is the boy's half brother.

This 1921 silent western/drama was produced by G & J Photoplay Company, starring Rex Ballard. The survival status of Across the Divide is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost film.
