Bright Lights (1925) - Lost ?
10 August 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is my ambition to add as many silent film synopsis of films that have a survival status of unknown or presumed lost. I try to do as much research as I can and it is not my intention to deceive anyone, for sometimes the film does exist. I am more than delighted if someone has knowledge of a film listed as lost but survives, as I wish all silent films did survive. I hope the reader enjoys this brief synopsis.

Tired of the Great White Way, cabaret girl Patsy Delaney ( Pauline Starke ) goes home to her mother ( Eugenie Besserer ) on the farm. A romance develops between Patsy and Tom Corbin ( Charles Ray ), a wholesome country lad. Tom feels acutely his lack of manners in comparison to those of Patsy's friends, and he imitates the style of a well-dressed loafer with disastrous results for their relationship. Patsy's friend puts Tom wise, and he goes back to his former ways and regains her love.

This 1925 comedy/romance was based from the short story "A Little Bit of Broadway" by Richard Edward Connell, produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, starring Charles Ray and Pauline Starke. The survival status of Bright Lights remains listed as a lost silent film.
