Lily of the Dust is a 1924 American silent drama film directed by Dimitri Buchowetzki, starring Pola Negri, produced by Famous Players-Lasky, and distributed by Paramount Pictures.[1][2] This movie was based on the 1908 novel The Song of Songs (German: Das hohe Lied) by Hermann Sudermann and the 1914 Broadway play The Song of Songs by Edward Sheldon.[3]

This film is a remake of the American silent film The Song of Songs (1918).



Negri was happy working with director Buchowetzki, who had also directed her in Men (1924) and in the German film Sappho (1921), which had been released in the U.S. as Mad Love, as her performances turned out well in his films.[4] Buchowetzki would later direct her once more in the romantic drama film The Crown of Lies (1926).


With no copies of Lily of the Dust located in any film archives,[5] it is a lost film.
