The Lion and the Mouse1928
The Lion and the Mouse (1928) is a part-silent/part-sound drama film produced by Warner Bros., directed by Lloyd Bacon, and based on the 1905 play by Charles Klein. The film marks the first time Lionel Barrymore, who was on loan out from MGM, spoke from the screen.
Judge Ross, on the Federal Bench, rules in favor of a large company in litigation before him, unaware that a smaller company in which he owns considerable stock has been subsumed by the larger firm, thus creating appearance of a conflict of interests. When one of the Judge's enemies plots to ruin the Judge over this apparent improper behavior, Judge Ross's daughter Shirley sets out to prove her father's innocence.
According to Warner Bros records the film earned $869,000 domestically and $100,000 foreign.
The movie survives in 35 mm at the Library of Congress and 16 mm at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. The soundtrack on Vitaphone discs partially survives in the UCLA Film and Television Archive.
