On the Banks of the Wabash (film)
On the Banks of the Wabash is a 1923 American silent rural melodrama film directed by J. Stuart Blackton and produced and distributed by his movie company, Vitagraph Studios. The film is very loosely based on Paul Dresser's song/poem "On the Banks of the Wabash, Far Away". The film was an expensive production, with full-size riverboat steamboat and location shooting. It was one of the last major productions by Vitagraph before they were bought by Warner Bros.
