The Lone Eagle (1927) - Unknown ?
9 September 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Important note: This is not a film review. I hope to be able to find and 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 and some presumed lost films are still being discovered. 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.

Billy Holmes ( Raymond Keane ), an American aviator, is assigned to a unit of the Royal Flying Corps involved in constant action over the western front and during his initial encounter with the enemy is accused of cowardice. When he meets Mimi ( Barbara Kent ), a charming little French girl, Billy is inspired to boast of his bravery in action. During a skirmish between the unit and a squadron of German airplanes, Red McGibbons ( Donald Stuart ), an ace and close friend of Billy's, brings down the brother of Lebrun ( Cuyler Supplee ), leader of the Hun force, but is himself killed. Lebrun challenges the Allies to an air duel, and Billy accepts the challenge despite Mimi's objections. Although he is forced to the ground by the experienced Lebrun, as is his friend, Sven ( Jack Pennick ), Billy miraculously escapes injury, pursues the German in another plane, and downs him. After the Armistice Billy returns home with Mimi as his wife.

This 1927 silent war/drama was produced by the Universal Pictures Corporation, starring Raymond Keane and Barbara Kent. The survival status of The Lone Eagle (1927) is listed in the American Silent Feature Film Database as; No holdings located in archives.
