Wine of Youth

Wine of Youth is a 1924 American silent comedy-drama film directed by King Vidor,[1] and released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, shortly after the merger which created MGM in April 1924. Vidor did not consider it important enough to mention in his autobiography,[2] although it did advance the careers of three young stars-to-be: Ben Lyon, Eleanor Boardman and William Haines. The film is preserved at George Eastman House, Rochester New York.[3]
