The Man on the Box Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This comedy drama involves the adventures of a cavalryman, Bob Warburton (Max Figman). 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 (Lolita Robertson). While the former cavalryman is not the best butler (his serving technique smacks of slapstick), he does save the Colonel (played by James Neil) 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 Jesse Lasky-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
