The Man Who Found Himself (1925) - Lost Silent ?
17 August 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Tom Macauley ( Thomas Meighan ) and his younger brother, Edwin ( Ralph Morgan ), are directors in their father's bank. Edwin speculates with the bank's funds, but banker Lon Morris ( Frank Morgan ), a supposed friend, plots successfully to have Tom shoulder the blame. In prison, Tom becomes a trusty, but he breaks out when he learns that Morris is to marry Nora Brooks ( Virginia Valli ), his fiancée. He confronts Morris and Nora with the truth, beats up Morris for good luck, and returns to prison. His father dies heartbroken, and Tom is scorned by Edwin's wife when he is released. With the aid of two prison buddies (The Optimist and The Pessimist), Tom breaks into the Macauley bank (now controlled by Morris), steals funds, plants them in Morris' house, and notifies the bank examiners. Morris, who actually has been embezzling funds, goes to the bank to obtain more money before making a getaway. He is shot by a watchman, Tom learns that Nora has been a wife in name only, and he marries her.

This 1925 silent drama was based on a short story by Booth Tarkington, produced by Famous Players-Lasky Corporation and starred Thomas Meighan, Virginia Valli, Frank Morgan and Ralph Morgan. The survival status of The Man Who Found Himself is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
