Trivia

The AFI Catalogue reports a release date of May 1919. However, a 13 April 1919 article "Written on the Screen" in the New York Times mentions the film was playing at the Broadway, although it was not reviewed. A week later, a similar article mentions it was in its second week at the Broadway. See more »

Crazy Credits

At the time, cast lists were often not in films; actors and their character names were credited in the intertitles right before they appear on-screen. In the 55-minute Milestone Film & Video print, the first 3 important cast members are not introduced in this way, but it is likely they were in the original print (which would have had a running time of 63 minutes at the sound speed of 24 fps). Fot this reason, the IMDb ordering lists these actors first, followed by those who are introduced by intertitles. The Milestone print also had no crew credits; these were taken from the AFI Catalogue. See more »

Alternate Versions

According to the closing credits of the Milestone Film & VideAccording to the closing credits of the Milestone Film & Video print, its version was copyrighted in 2006 by them and Nederland Filmmuseum (the opening credits say 2005). It is a 55-minute version with a musical score compiled by Rodney Sauer and played by the Mont Alto Orchestra from an original 1922 cue sheet. See more »

Great Classic Film
19 October 2007 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

Always enjoy looking back at the past and how people enjoyed their favorite screen stars and the way you had to read lines through out an entire film. Mae Murray, (Mary McGuire) plays the role of a poor girl who has relatives who are very lazy and have big desires for food and she decides she wants to get a job as a dancer in a night club and assumes the name of a famous European dancer and goes on to make a very successful career. Mary meets up with Jimmy Calhoun, (Rudolph Valentino) in the night club she dances in and finds out he is the son of a very rich business man who does not like his son getting involved with a dancer and does everything he can to investigate this young woman. All these actors had a great magic in their expressions on the screen and their eyes all tell a story without any talking. Great look back at the past and great actors.
