Proud Flesh -- April 18, 2019

Metro-Goldwyn Pictures Presentation Book, 1924 (Australia)
Today is the 113th anniversary of the 1906 Earthquake and Fire in San Francisco.

In 1925, King Vidor directed his future wife, Eleanor Boardman, in Proud Flesh, the story of a woman who was born and orphaned during the 1906 Earthquake and Fire. Fernanda was raised by relatives in Spain, but decided to visit San Francisco to get away from Don Jaime, played by the original Harrison Ford. She meets Pat O'Malley, played by Pat O'Malley <I>(no kidding - JT)</I>, a plumbing contractor. Don Jaime comes to San Francisco and Fernanda is torn between the two men.
