Douglas Fairbanks starred in the original Broadway production of James B. Fagan's Hawthorne of the USA, but Doug was too busy setting up United Artists in 1919 to appear in the film version. The popular Wallace Reid takes over as Anthony Hamilton Hawthorne, a young man who wins a tidy sum at Monte Carlo. He then vacations in a mythical middle-European country, where he foils a Bolshevik uprising. As a bonus, he wins the hand of Lila Lee, daughter of the rightful ruler. Is it really necessary to note that the "Harrison Ford" who co-stars in Hawthorne of the USA is not the same guy who starred in Raiders of the Lost Ark?
