Beverly of Graustark (1926) is a silent film directed by Sidney Franklin, starring Marion Davies, Antonio Moreno and Creighton Hale. The film's screenplay was written by Agnes Christine Johnston based on the novel by George Barr McCutcheon, and set on the fictional land of Graustark. The movie features a final sequence in Technicolor. This was the first film by Sidney Franklin for MGM.
Marion Davies is a young American woman who must stand in for her cousin Prince Oscar when he is injured while being escorted to take his throne. She falls in love with goatherd Dantan, who helped rescue her from the evil General Marlanax, and after assorted palace intrigue everything ends happily.
Marion Davies is OK in a role that seems perfect for Mary Pickford. Quite competent, but there is nothing to go out of the way for.
