Beau Revel ★★★½ 1921

Critically acclaimed romantic drama of the silent era. A passionate dancing girl played by Vidor, one of the '20s' more prolific romantic leads (and erstwhile wife of director King Vidor) is the object of romantic interest of a father and son, which leaves the threesome lovelorn, suicidal, and emotionally scarred. You might recognize Stone from his later role as Judge Hardy in the MGM “Hardy Family” series. 70m/B VHS . Lewis Stone, Florence Vidor, Lloyd Hughes, Katherine Kirkham, William Conklin; D: John Griffith Wray.
