Merton of the Movies is a 1924 comedy film directed by James Cruze and written by Walter Woods. The film is now considered a lost film.[1] The film stars Glenn Hunter and Viola Dana.


Merton is an aspiring movie actor. He is a terrible actor but when the movie executives see how funny his overacting is, they cast him in a comedy, but tell him that he's acting in a drama.
