Ann Harding's first film is among the lost.
1 July 2002 | by (Putney, VT) – See all my reviews

Luminous actress Ann Harding began her film career with this work, which unfortunately is one of a handful of her films that are no longer in existence. At this point in time, no negative or print materials are known to exist of this film.
