Light of Faith, The (1922)

*** (out of 4)

A rather interesting religious/love story about a young woman who is seriously injured (Hope Hampton) and is being taken care of by a thief (Lon Chaney). One day the woman notices that her ex love, who thinks she's dead, has found the Holy Grail. The woman tells the thief that this grail has the power to heal so he sets out to find her ex and get the item. This is the shortened version of The Light in the Dark, a film that was believed lost until being found three years ago. This shortened version was prepared in 1927 by a religious group and this is the version, which has been seen the most. This version runs 40 minutes shorter and while I'd love to see the full version this one here is quite impressive. Hampton is very good in the lead even though she hasn't much to do and Chaney is terrific and quite believable as the thief with a good soul. The lighting used in this film is some of the greatest I've seen from any silent film and it makes the religious moments very strong. This film is on Kino's DVD of Oliver Twist but hopefully they'll release the full version at some point.
