Movie Details

Veteran African-American actor Clarence Brooks was convinced to come out of five years retirement to star in this low-budget silent Western melodrama about a shell-shocked army veteran who recovers while helping an old prospector and his daughter fight off a gang of usurpers. George Reed, Floyd Schackelford, Rosa Lee Lincoln, and Clarence Williams also appeared in Absent, the only film produced by the Rosebud Film Corp. Brooks and director-cameraman Harry A. Gant (who was white) were both veterans of America's first notable African-American film studio, the Lincoln Motion Picture Company. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
