Little Old New York DVD

Set in early-19th century New York City, Little Old New York (1923) finds Marion Davies as Patricia O’Day, who arrives from Ireland to claim a family fortune . . . posing as her younger brother Patrick in order to do so. She meets Larry Delavan (Harrison Ford) who had planned on receiving that inheritance so he could back Fulton’s new steamship and is now stuck. All of this is complicated by Patricia’s falling in love with Delavan… who believes she is Patrick.

Marion Davies’ Little Old New York delivered the same top-notch entertainment to movie audiences as the blockbuster hit When Knighthood Was In Flower had the year before. Packed with humor, charm, thrills and crowd scenes, the film possesses a lavish production scale and strong ensemble cast, that includes Louis Wolheim and Harry Watson, Jr.

This DVD edition presents the film in a new 2K digital scan made from a 35mm nitrate print in the collection of the Library of Congress and features a new theatre organ score by Ben Model.
