Chester Franklin or Edmund Goulding?, 26 September 2007

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

In a work that i'm doing about movies, in Reguengos of Monsaraz (Portugal), the city were i leave, i found a program press in paper, about The Thirteenth Hour (1927). The public saw this film on 1930, June, 30. In that program the credits are to Edmund Goulding as director, to Chester Franklin as an actor (like Lionel Barrymore and Jacqueline Gadsden too) and to a police-dog named Flash as an "actor" too. However i can't find anywhere, for this movie, Ed. Goulding as director and C. Franklin as an actor. Or are we in front of new elements for the cast? In Portuguese language the title of the movie is ASSASSINO MISTERIOSO ( = Mysterious Killer) and the extension of the movie is 6 reels.
