Babbitt (1924) - Lost Film, 14 July 2015
Author: Pamela Short from Canada

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This 1924 silent drama was based on the novel Babbitt by Sinclair Lewis, the film was produced by Warner Bros. starring Willard Louis. Tragically it now remains a lost silent film and all I can provide the reader is this brief synopsis. It was film again in 1934 starring Guy Kibbee.

George F. Babbitt ( Willard Louis ), middle-aged, respectable, a prosperous real estate man in the city of Zenith, tired of the routine of family life, finds he has let life slip by. In an attempt to renew his youth he begins an affair with Tanis Judique ( Carmel Myers ), an alluring young woman, with whom he plans to leave town, at the pleas of his son ( Raymond McKee ), however, he returns to his sick wife ( Mary Alden ), confesses his foolishness, and resumes the happiness of family life.
