1924. USA. Directed by Allan Dwan. With Gloria Swanson, Tom Moore, Lilyan Tashman, Ian Keith. Anticipating King Vidor’s 1928 The Crowd, Dwan shot on the streets of New York (some simulated) and added some non-glamorous dimensions to Swanson’s screen image as just "one of the mob." As Fred Lombardi says, by now the director and actress had established themselves as a “winning team,” and Swanson considered Dwan "a genius." Abridged version. Silent, with musical accompaniment. Approx. 60 min.
