Eyes of Youth is a 1919 American silent drama film directed by Albert Parker and starring Clara Kimball Young. The film was based on a stage play Eyes of Youth performed on Broadway in 1917-18 and starred Marjorie Rambeau. This film also features Rudolph Valentino in a role as a thief/con artist.[1] [2]

This film is often credited as the vehicle that led Valentino to be cast in The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse (1921).[3][4]



The story was remade as The Love of Sunya (1927) starring Gloria Swanson and with Al Parker once again directing.
