The 35 Year Old Noble Johnson
25 April 2002 | by The NovelistSee all my reviews

After making his screen debut at the age of 34, Noble Johnson joined forces with Clarence Brooks to make this film. Although it is not a well known film, it was their answer to Cecil B. DeMille, D.W. Griffith and Charles Chaplin.
