QUEEN OF THE CHORUS (1928) and LUCIA'S BROKEN ROMANCE (1911)
 

QUEEN OF THE CHORUS starring Virginia Brown Faire, Rex Lease, Lloyd Whitlock, Betty Francisco and Charles Hill Mailes. Directed by Charles J. Hunt. Gordon Trent is a nasty, greedy millionaire who neglects his wife to philander around town with chorus girls. He relentlessly pursues Queenie Dale, who is actually in love with Trent's private secretary, Billy Cooke. When Trent learns of their romance, he blackmails Queenie into a compromising hotel rendezvous. His intention is to be discovered by his wife's detectives to facilitate his divorce, but also to destroy Queenie and Billy's love forever. Pre-code hijinks abound in this lively and extremely rare feature from the late silent era!

LUCIA'S BROKEN ROMANCE A poor girl, living in a rundown tenement with her parents, has a great talent for the violin. Disgusted by her impoverished family and her surroundings, she runs off on her own to play her violin in the streets. When she is discovered by a great musician she claims to be an orphan and the two begin an affair. But her father, discovering her whereabouts, has other plans for his wayward daughter.

Another true rarity, very little is known about this Pathe Freres short. We do know that it was produced in the USA in 1911, Gertrude Norman appears in the cast and it was likely directed by James Young Deer.
