A Trip to Chinatown (1926) - Lost ?
5 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.

Millionaire and hypochondriac Welland Strong ( Earle Foxe ) is given only six months to live and decides to take a trip. Aboard a Pullman, he runs afoul of a jealous bridegroom who mistakenly believes that Strong has been making love to his wife. He then arrives in San Francisco's Chinatown, where he meets a charming widow ( Margaret Livingston ). The excitement of pursuing her cures him and he ends up winning the widow.

This 1926 silent comedy was based from the short story "A Trip to Chinatown" by Charles Hoyt, produced by the Fox Film Corporation, starring Earle Foxe, Margaret Livingston, with a supporting cast including Anna May Wong, Charles Farrell and J. Farrell MacDonald. Survival status: The film is presumed lost.
