Revelation (1924 film)
Revelation is a 1924 film starring Viola Dana, Monte Blue and Lew Cody. The film was directed and written by George D. Baker, based upon a popular novel, The Rosebud of a Thousand Years. Viola Dana was one of the top stars of the newly amalgamated MGM, a lively comedian who enjoyed a long career that faded with the emergence of the talkies.

Joline Hofer (Viola Dana) is a profligate Montmartre dancer who left her illegitimate child in a convent. Paul Granville (Monte Blue) is an American artist who becomes smitten by the dancer, and uses her for his portraits of great women. When one of Paul's paintings, of the Madonna, appears to result in a miracle, Joline's life is changed forever, as she reforms, reclaims her child, and marries the artist.
