The Little Snob (1928) - Lost Silent Film
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.

Colonel Banks ( Alec Francis ), owner of the "Kentucky Derby," a Coney Island concession, sends his daughter, May ( May McAvoy ), to a finishing school. She leaves her father and sweetheart Jim ( Robert Frazier ), laughingly remarking that she will "high hat" all her friends when she returns. At school she acquires the mannerisms and tastes of her worldly friends, Alice ( Frances Lee ) and Jane ( Virginia Lee Corbin ), and gets engaged to Walt Keene ( John Miljan ), who believes she is wealthy. Her association with them changes her into an insufferable snob. Her friends denounce her when, on a jaunt to Coney Island, they discover that her father is not a "Kentucky colonel." After a moment of panic, May decides to return to her former friends and life, and, jumping to the platform, she proceeds to "bark" to the crowd, proving to her father and Jim that she is not ashamed of them. Later, Keene returns to reclaim his diamond ring, saying, "I'll teach you to play with fire, you little carnival trollop." Jim comes to the rescue and gives Keene the thrashing of his life.

This 1928 comedy/drama was produced by Warner Brothers Pictures, starring May McAvoy. The Little Snob (1928) was a silent film, with synchronized music and sound effects. Sadly, it now remains a lost film.
