Cameo Kirby is a 1923 American silent drama film directed by John Ford and featured Jean Arthur in her onscreen debut. It was Ford's first film credited as John Ford instead of Jack Ford.[1] It was based on a play by Booth Tarkington and Harry Leon Wilson. The story had been filmed as a silent before in 1915 with Dustin Farnum, who had originated the role on Broadway in 1909. The film was remade as a talking musical film in 1930.

Prints of the film exist in the UCLA Film and Television Archive and at the Cinemateca Portuguesa (Portuguese Film Archive), in Lisbon.
