Not a Drum Was Heard is a 1924 American silent Western film directed by William A. Wellman.[1][2] The title is taken from the first line of Charles Wolfe's poem "The Burial of Sir John Moore after Corunna":

Not a drum was heard, not a funeral note,
As his corse{sic} to the rampart we hurried;
Not a soldier discharged his farewell shot
O'er the grave where our hero we buried.


As described in a film magazine review,[3] Jack Mills and Bud Loupel; they ride the ranch together, rescue each other from certain death, and fall in love with Jean Ross. She selects Bud to be the lucky one. Married life starts in a bungalow acquired on the installment plan from the town banker Rand, who also had courted Jean. Bud obtains employment at the bank as a teller. He falls into a trap set by Rand and steals funds. Jack hears of it, stages a holdup to cover the money, and tries to assume all blame. However, Bud has been mortally wounded and, in the mix-up, exonerates his friend before he dies.



With no prints of Not a Drum Was Heard in any film archives,[4] it is a lost film.
