Character actor Michael Shannon has been nominated for his second Oscar for his role in the 2016 thriller Nocturnal Animals. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some of the other characters he's played in the past.
Mary Rand ( Beverly Bayne ), who wants the best both for herself and for her daughter, Henrietta ( Pauline Garon ), divorces her husband John ( Frank Mayo ), a poor minister, and returns to her lucrative law practice. She soon falls in love with her law partner, Corbin ( Bryant Washburn ), who in turn falls in love with Henrietta and romances both mother and daughter. Mary is elected district attorney, Corbin is found murdered, and Henrietta is blamed for the crime. John Rand, who was a lawyer before he became a minister, defends his daughter in court and proves that the gun found on her person was not the gun used to shoot Corbin. Henrietta is freed, and John and Mary are reconciled.
This 1925 silent drama was produced by the Truart Film Corporation, starring Beverly Bayne and Bryant Washburn. Passionate Youth is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
