Footlights is a 1921 American silent film romantic drama directed by John S. Robertson. It stars Elsie Ferguson and Reginald Denny in the lead characters. The film marked the only time star Ferguson and director Robertson worked together on a picture. This romantic adventure cannot be assessed today as it is presumably a lost film[1] with no prints known to exist.[2][3]
