'Mantrap' (1926), directed by Victor Fleming: Ralph Prescott, a New York divorce lawyer and his buddy, E. Wesson Woodbury, decide to get away from it all on a camping trip near Mantrap, Canada. However, the city slickers are a bit out of their depth in the North woods. After the two get into a tussle, Joe Easter, the local trading post owner, takes Prescott to Mantrap, where Prescott meets Joe’s new flirtatious wife, Alverna (Clara Bow). Sparks begin to fly…
"Midnight Madness' (1928), directed by F. Harmon Weight: “Its very title reeks of strange people, mystery, suspense!” reads the advance publicity for this silent melodrama, loosely inspired by The Taming of the Shrew and directed by F. Harmon Weight.
