Fun Size Review: The Canadian (1926)

Ignored upon initial release, this smart drama has since built a following among silent movie fans and for very good reason: it’s excellent.

It’s about a sophisticated Englishwoman who finds herself stuck in a marriage of convenience with a rough Canadian farmer. Veteran leading man Thomas Meighan and newcomer Mona Palma give brilliant, understated performances. Do yourself a favor and seek this picture out.

How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.

After an incredibly rough start (which include some very dark and adult moments, as well as a helping heaping of character development), the mismatched leads fall in love.

If it were a dessert it would be: Pecan Maple Loaf. Down home and deceptively simple, it’s a winning combination.

Availability: Released on DVD and Bluray.
