Your Ticket To The Movies – 1923

East Side – West Side

Preview: At the center of the film East Side-West Side is Lory James (Eileen Percy), her poor east side roommates Kit (Maxine Elliott Hicks), Eunice (Lucille Hutton), and her wealthy west side boss Duncan Van Norman (Kenneth Harlan). Money is the central divide.

Principal Pictures released this six reel melodrama, which was adapted from a Broadway play, in 1923. The film was later released on the 16mm home market in a five reel Kodascope version and that’s what we present here with a terrific score by none other than Jon Mirsalis.

[Silent films had music but synchronized dialogue, aka  “talking pictures” or “talkies” were not available in feature length films until 1927.]
