Broadway Nights (1927) -- Lost silent film ?
4 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Fannie (Lois Wilson), an ambitious music hall performer, becomes a success with the help of Johnny Fay (Sam Hardy), master of ceremonies and an inveterate gambler. He marries her, and three years later they have a child. In New York they are engaged at a nightclub where Fannie is seen by Bronson (Philip Strange) and Baron (Louis John Bartels), musical comedy producers. They offer Fannie a job if she will agree to leave Johnny, but she refuses. Fannie and Johnny are fired when a reformer discovers their child, and Johnny loses their last penny gambling. In desperation, Fannie accepts Bronson's offer, while Johnny gets along singing in a honky-tonk. Fannie decides to divorce him but changes her mind when she hears Johnny singing on the radio. Fannie is a flop until Johnny is engaged to stage the show, for which he has actually written the music, and they are then reconciled.

The loss of this 1927 drama/romance remains a tragedy for many fans of silent cinema. The cast included some of the most popular stars of the day, playing themselves, including June Collyer , Sylvia Sidney , Georgette Duval along with a young Barbara Stanwyck and Ann Sothern playing fan dancers, both uncredited. Distributed by First National Pictures, Broadway Nights remains a sad loss.
