A Small Town Idol is a 1921 American silent feature comedy film produced by Mack Sennett and released through Associated First National. The film stars Ben Turpin and was made and acted by many of the same Sennett personnel from his previous year's Down on the Farm. Sennett and Erle C. Kenton directed.[1][2]

The picture was Sennett’s biggest undertaking to date, costing $350,000 and required over a year to make.[1]

Plot

Sam (Turpin) leaves town after being falsely accused of a crime and becomes a film star in Hollywood working with actress Marcelle Mansfield (Prevost). He returns to his home town hailed as a hero where one of his films is shown in the theater. His rival Jones (Finlayson), who wants Sam's girlfriend Mary (Haver), frames Sam for the shooting of Mary's father. Just as the townspeople are about to lynch Sam, Mary arrives to prove Sam's innocence and the two are reconciled.

Notes

  • This was Ramon Novarro's seventh film, where he was billed as Ramon Samaniegos.
  • Copies of the film exist in archives, such as Gosfilmofond.
  • In 1939, Warner Bros. cut it down to two reels, adding music, sound effects and narration, and released it as a "Broadway Brevity."
