Restored version finally comes to light.
2 April 2003 | by (Culpeper, Virginia) – See all my reviews

The Light of Faith, a three-reel condensed version of this film, is available on Kino video. The George Eastman House recently restored the original full 6-reel feature, which we were treated to at Cinefest in Syracuse, NY in March 2003. Lon Chaney plays a kind-hearted thief who falls for Bessie MacGregor (Hope Hampton, star and producer) who has been taken in by a wealthy society matron after being struck by the matron's automobile. He steals a goblet (the Holy Grail?) reputed to have healing powers in hopes of restoring Bessie's health. The film was praised for its art direction and cinematography at the time of its release.
