Is Beverly of Graustark (1926) a lost film?  If not, I wish TCM would play it since she is paired with Antonio Moreno.

 

Library of Congress has all Marion Davies' MGM silent films, including BEVERLY OF GRAUSTARK. They are owned by Warners and there fore under copyright. Warners apparently has no plans to release these films.

 

By the way, it's a marvelous film with Davies playing Beverly, who disguises herself as her injured cousin PRINCE OSCAR in order to save the throne of Graustark. Especially funny is a drinking scene in which the prince (Davies) must down tankards of beer while drinking with his/her men.

Three films starring MARION DAVIES will be released later this year by Undercrank Productions. All three will be on DVD and or Blu-Ray for the first time ever. Here's a press release about WHEN KNIGHTHOOD WAS IN FLOWER, THE BRIDE'S PLAY, and BEAUTY'S WORTH.
