Exists in an incomplete state at UCLA
31 July 2002 | by (Putney, VT) – See all my reviews

THE RIGHT TO LOVE was a most popular vehicle for star, Ruth Chatterton, but has since almost disappeared from view. The only copy known to exist is missing one reel and is housed at UCLA. This is a preservation print and is not available to the general public for viewing.
