~Tin Gods~
1926
~1000-84: Thomas Meighan & Renee Adoree~
~Plot Synopsis~
With a star-director combination like Tommy Meighan and Allan Dwan, how could Tin Gods not succeed
at the box office? After the death of his child in an accident, engineer Roger Drake (Meighan) parts
company with his politically ambitious wife Janet (Aileen Pringle). Unable to hold onto a job in the U.S.,
Drake ends up working on a treacherous bridge project in South America. Stricken with fever, Drake is
saved through the tender ministrations of native girl Carita (Renee Adoree). But when he recovers, our
hero indicates that he may wish to reconcile with his wife, whereupon the heartbroken Carita jumps off
the newly-completed bridge to her death. Profoundly affected by this, Drake elects to remain in South
America long enough to build a shrine for his lost love. Among the screenwriters for Tin Gods was actor
Paul Dickey, who'd previously played Guy of Gisborne in the Allan Dwan-directed Robin Hood (1922).
