The Eternal City (1923): Photoplay Ed.

Unread post by bobfells » Mon Sep 03, 2012 1:27 pm

Lost films seem to have a special cachet in Photoplay Editions because these volumes are about the only way we can "watch" the films unless a print turns up. THE ETERNAL CITY, directed by George Fitzmaurice, was filmed on location in Rome and stars Barbara la Marr, Bert Lytell, Lionel Barrymore, and an uncredited Ronald Colman and Joan Bennett (the changes in star rankings that only a few years would bring!).

I was under the impression that there might be a fragmentary print of the 1923 version, but that the 1915 version was lost. I wonder if the 1923 version has the same wacko plot? I've got a page on the 1915 version here:
