Mammy's Boy Done as His Darker Self
31 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The film was made with Lloyd Hamilton and released in 1924. I found an article on it in The Washington Post, April 21, 1924:

Hamilton ComedyAnd Sennett Film On Crandall Bill

The film play in which David Wark Griffith, producer of 'The Birth of a Nation' and 'America,' had expected to present Al Jolson as a star of a silent drama is on viewfor the first time in Washington as chief feature of the Easter bill at Crandall's theater. When Mr. Jolson decided that the screen was not for him and departed for Europe, Lloyd Hamilton was called from the West coast to fill the breach. With what success he met in his first full feature-length comedy may be gathered by listening to the roars of laughter that are elicited by "His Darker Self" at Crandall's any time from now through Wednesday night.

"His Darker Self" displays the varied moods into which a young man may be thrown while attempting to find a murderer in the "black belt" by smearing his face with burnt cork and invading questionable precincts of a dusky gambler who held life cheaply. There is a lot of fun here, due principally to Mr. Hamilton, but with Tom Wilson, Tom O'Malley, Lucille La Verne, and others aiding the cast.
