Synopsis

Eyes Right!
This silent drama is based on a story by Ernest Grayman and is set in a military academy. There a young man toils in the cafeteria to earn tuition money so he too can attend the prestigious school. One day the commandant sees the lad horsing around in an impromptu football game. Seeing that the youth is talented, he enrolls him in the school. Trouble brews when the cadet begins to court the commandant's niece. The courtship enrages another student who frames the hero, causing his dismissal. Fortunately, the commandant staunchly defends the boy and gets him reinstated just in time for the Big Game. Victory and a happy ending ensues. ~ John ?, Rovi

Who's Your Friend
This silent comedy from poverty row company Goodwill starred Francis X. Bushman as Ken Lanning, a young man whose prospective in-laws find him unsuitable for their daughter Alice (Patricia Palmer). A jealous suitor, Gregory (Erwin Renard), who the parents prefer, places a vamp (Hazel Howell) in Ken's room with the obvious results. Believing Ken to be a two-timing scoundrel, Alice agrees to marry Gregory, but the groom-to-be is intercepted on his way to the ceremony by Ken, who takes his place at the altar. The wedding is interrupted by Alice's irate parents who arrive to take the bride away. A wild chase ensues, during which Ken nabs his bride from a speeding car. The youngsters escape to a construction site, where they are finally wed on a hoist high above the city streets. Co-written by future star director Tay Garnett (The Postman Always Rings Twice), this minor farce was one in a series of Goodwill productions -- mostly action adventures -- to star the young son of early silent matinee idol Francis X. Bushman. Bushman later changed his name to Ralph Bushman and enjoyed a sporadic screen career lasting through the '30s. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
