McFadden's Flats (1927) - Lost ?
29 August 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

McFadden ( Charlie Murray ), an Irish contractor, and McTavish ( Larry Kent ), a Scottish barber, become fast friends, and McTavish's son, Jock ( Chester Conklin ), meets and falls in love with Mary Ellen ( Edna Murphy ), McFadden's daughter. McFadden, having increased his store of worldly goods, sends his daughter to a finishing school, to the dismay of young Jock. McFadden also provokes frequent outbursts from McTavish, whose outlook on life is the antithesis of his own. McFadden's ambition to complete a flat building is well underway when he suddenly finds himself in financial straits, when McTavish secretly helps him out, all eventually works out well for the friends and the young lovers.

This 1927 silent comedy was based on the popular 1896 play McFadden's Row of Flats by Gus Hill. Produced by Asher-Small-Rogers and distributed through First National Pictures, starring Chester Conklin, McFadden's Flats was well received by audiences. Sadly, this silent may now be a lost film.
