A down-and-out actor is coached by a fading star when he is offered a part in a play in London. One of dozens of director John Ford's silent films, this backstage comedy was thought lost until a complete copy turned up in New Zealand in 2009. Many of the plot elements are said to echo the real-life Barrymore acting dynasty.

Starring Nancy Nash, Earle Foxe, Grant Withers, Lydia Yeamans, Titus Émile, Chautard, Raymond Hitchcock, Ted McNamara, Sammy Cohen, Jane Winton, Lillian Worth, Judy King.

Directed by John Ford. Written by Wallace Smith, Randall Faye.

Currently streaming free in the US on Tubi. JustWatch listing.

How about I post another six John Ford movies today, just because?
