    Where is My Wandering Boy Tonight? (Equity, 1922). Half Sheet (22" X 28"). A silent melodrama based on a popular song, this film is about a small town boy (Cullen Landis) who goes to the big city, leaving his mother (Virginia True Boardman) and sweetheart (Patsy Ruth Miller, better known as Esmeralda in 1923's The Hunchback of Notre Dame) behind. While in the evil town, he falls victim to the perils of big city life, eventually turning to theft when he can't support the extravagant tastes of his new squeeze, showgirl Veronica Tyler (Kathleen Key). He winds up in the slammer, but gains a pardon when he rescues the warden from certain death. This attractive, and daring, Jazz Age half sheet, showing a wild party in progress, has pinholes in the corners, light edge wear, minor staining and a small tear in the bottom border, and a small crease in the bottom right. However, these minor flaws in no way detract from the incredible appeal of this vintage treasure. Rolled, Very Fine+.
