Gleam O'Dawn (1922) -- Lost Silent ?
24 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Artist Gleam O'Dawn ( John Gilbert ) , lives in the Canadian woods, one day encounters Silas Huntworth ( Edwin B. Tilton ) and his adopted daughter, Nini ( Barbara Bedford ) and they become his friends. A daily visitor to the Huntworth cabin is Pierre ( Clarence Wilson ), a demented halfbreed fiddler who confides to Gleam that Huntworth, who deserted his wife years before, is actually Gleam's father. Pierre, who was in love with Gleam's mother, incites him to face Huntworth with the accusation and to take revenge on him. Huntworth confesses that he was married but was taken ill with fever while searching for gold and was later unable to find his adopted son, left homeless by the death of his wife. Realizing his failure to obtain revenge, Pierre leaves Silas, Gleam, and Nini to their happiness.

This 1922 silent melodrama was produced by the Fox Film Corporation, starring popular matinée idol, John Gilbert. The status of this film is listed as unknown, which sadly suggests it may now be a lost silent.
