Preservation status

This film is now lost. Warner Bros. records of the film's negative have a notation, "Junked 12/27/48" (i.e. December 27, 1948). Warner Bros. destroyed many of its negatives in the late 1940s and 1950s due to pre-1933 nitrate film decomposition. No copies of Lover's Lane are known to exist.
