Not a lost film
1 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This supposedly "lost film" is definitely not lost, although sources say only a partial nitrate print exists in the UCLA archives. Charles "Buddy" Rogers stars as a young American in London. Once a millionaire, he's lost everything due to losing his racehorse and the efforts of a gangster. Working as a waiter, he falls for a lovely young girl who's aunt wants her to marry wealth (as they are down to "enough for just one more season"). Then it's boy chases girl as he tries to get a riding job for the big cross country race. The film also benefits from a nice performance by Frances Dee, a lovely actress who graced some early Paramount treasures. Bob Connors
