Dynamite Smith (1924) -- Lost Silent ?
2 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This 1924 drama was produced by the Thomas H. Ince Corporation, and boasted several popular stars of the day, Charles Ray , Bessie Love , Jacqueline Logan and Wallace Beery. All I can offer the reader of this lost film, is a brief synopsis and hopefully a copy survives and resurfaces, as surviving scene photos from Dynamite Smith, show an intriguing story.

Timid San Francisco news reporter Gladstone Smith (Charles Ray), assigned to a murder case, sympathizes with the wife of the killer, Violet ( Bessie Love ) and flees with her to Alaska, with nasty "Slugger" Rourke ( Wallace Beery) hot on their trail. When Rourke finds them, Gladstone escapes with her baby to a settlement where he meets restaurant cashier Kitty Gray (Jacqueline Logan). Again Rourke interferes, but Gladstone manages to capture him in a bear trap and Rourke dies in a dynamite explosion.
