Marianne is a 1929 silent romantic drama about a French farm girl who, despite already having a French fiancé, falls in love with an American soldier during World War I. It was made first as a silent film, then as a musical with a different cast, though Marion Davies starred in both versions.



In her 30th and final silent film, Marion Davies starred for director Robert Z. Leonard in this World War I story about a French Girl who falls for an American soldier (Oscar Shaw). Davies was rushed into this project after production of the ill-fated The Five O'Clock Girl shuttered. The film was entirely remade as a talkie. This silent version survives but was long thought lost. When Fred Lawrence Guiles wrote his biography of Davies in 1972, he stated the silent version was lost. The film offered Davies another chance to masquerade, this time as the aged army officer with a big mustache. By the time the decision was made to re-shoot the entire film as a talkie, Oscar Shaw was out and Lawrence Gray was signed as Davies' leading man.[1]
