The Main Event ( 1927 ) - Lost Silent ?
12 August 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Cabaret dancer Glory Frayne ( Vera Reynolds ), is in love with Red Lucas ( Robert Armstrong ), a prizefighter whose opponent, Johnnie Regan ( Charles Delaney ), she meets accidentally when he comes to her cabaret performance. When Johnnie is attracted to her, Glory sees in the situation an opportunity of clinching the forthcoming fight for Lucas, and she deliberately keeps Johnnie away from training. Reprimanded by his father ( Rudolph Schildkraut ) for his poor condition, Johnnie insists that his love for Glory means more to him than the fight. Glory, realizing her love for Johnnie, regrets her plotting and admits her feelings to Lucas, who takes up with Margie ( Julia Faye ), Glory's girl friend. Glory tries to persuade Johnnie to stay out of the ring, but learning of her scheming, he goes to his defeat. Afterwards, she assures him of her love, and they are married.

This 1927 silent drama was produced by DeMille Pictures Corporation, starring Vera Reynolds. The survival status of The Main Event is now listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent.
