THE BELLE OF NEW YORK (1919)

Here's an intertitle from the fragmentary remains of this Marion Davies film. Walturdaw was a one-time production company in the WW I era. It continued as a film distributor until 1924. Did they distribute films in the USA or this this remnant from a British copy?

Fragment of reels 3 and 4 remain, preserved at Library of Congress. Does any Euro archive have any other pieces of this film?

Judging from the MHDL entries it seems like Walturdaw was strictly a UK operation, as around 1920 Selznik and First National were using them to distribute in the UK.
