Lights of Old Broadway (1925)
After their ship docked in mid-19th-century New York, two abandoned twin foundlings would be brought up into different fates, with Anne de Rhonde (Marion Davies) raised to Washington Square wealth and Fely O’Tandy (Davies, again) a product of the tenements. Fate would find their paths crossing again–as Fely was courted by Anne’s adoptive brother Dirk (Conrad Nagel)–in this glossy historical vehicle boasting early color sequences. Frank Currier co-stars.
