Blackton directed Warner Brothers silent
zpzjones from East Coast, U.S.A.
18 June 2010
Interesting that this film was directed by J. Stuart Blackton(one of
the founders of Vitagraph Studios) and produced by the Warner Brothers,
the then fledgling studio that bought out-or-merged with Blackton's
Vitagraph. Blackton directed several silent features in the 1920s for
his own company. This is his first for the new Warner Brothers regime.
It stars Dolores Costello and Tyrone Power Sr.(1869-1931). Since this
appears to be a lost film, a copy can't be reviewed for individual
synopsis. But more than likely Blackton probably cut some 'directing'
deal with the Warners before the merger of his old studio with theirs.
He directs for or five more films for Warner Brothers into 1927 after
"Bride of the Storm".
