The Road to Glory

May McAvoy and Leslie Fenton in The Road to Glory (1926), the story of a woman blinded in an auto accident who regains her sight with the power of prayer.  Howard Hawks said “It was a very dramatic, serious, downbeat story.  It didn’t have any fun in it.  It was pretty bad.”   No prints survive so we cannot confirm Hawks’ assessment.
