Heroes of the Street (1922) -- Lost Silent ?
8 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Mike Callahan, ( Will Walling ) one of "New York's finest," is killed in the line of duty, and his murderer is not captured although "The Shadow" ( Philo McCullough ) is suspected. Mike's young son, Mickey ( Wesley Barry ), bravely tries to act as head of the family, and through his friend, Broadway chorus girl Betty Beaton ( Marie Prevost ), he gets a job as property boy. Betty is in love with Howard Lane ( Jack Mulhall ), but to further her career she accepts the attentions of wealthy Gordon Trent, then agrees with him to undergo a phony kidnapping as a publicity stunt. Unwittingly, Mickey tries to rescue Betty, uncovers a blackmail plot against her, and discovers Trent to be not only "The Shadow" but also his father's murderer.

This 1922 silent drama was based on the play, Heroes of the Street by Leon Parker and filmed by Warner Brothers Pictures. Starring Wesley Barry and Marie Prevost, this film is now listed as unknown on the list of lost silent films. Hopefully a copy survives and resurfaces for public viewing.
