The Glorious Adventure is a 1918 American silent film which was one of the last made in the Kinemacolor process.

Production background[edit]

The film was directed by Hobart Henley, and starred Mae Marsh and Wyndham Standing. The film also featured an elderly black woman, Mammy Lou, who claimed to be 114 years old at the time of filming. Art direction for the film was by Hugo Ballin.

The film was produced by Samuel Goldwyn, based on the short story "When Carey Came to Town" by Edith Barnard Delano, and released by Goldwyn Pictures.[1] The movie was filmed partly on location at the Hermitage Plantation in Savannah, Georgia which was bought in 1935 by Union Camp Corporation and demolished.

This film is not to be confused with another film of the same title, directed in England in 1922 by J. Stuart Blackton in the Prizmacolor process. Neither film is based on the famous book The Glorious Adventure (1927) by Richard Halliburton.
