The Man on the Box Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This comedy drama involves the adventures of a cavalryman, Bob Warburton ([[Performer~P23406~Max Figman~maxfigman]]). Warburton's regiment saves a wagontrain from Indian attack, and after he has healed from his wounds, Warburton winds up working in Colonel Annesley's house. He is interested in the Colonel's daughter Betty ([[Performer~P60700~Lolita Robertson~lolitarobertson]]). While the former cavalryman is not the best butler (his serving technique smacks of slapstick), he does save the Colonel (played by [[Performer~P52120~James Neil~jamesneill]]) from trading U.S. secrets in order to pay off gambling debts. In addition to straightening out the Annesley family's problems, he also gets the girl. This early [[Performer~P98810~Jesse Lasky~jesselasky]]-produced silent was rather a crude effort, considering the sort of features his company would be putting out within a year's time. ~ Janiss Garza, Rovi
