The Cavalier (1928) is a western directed by Irvin Willat, distributed by Tiffany Studios, and starring Richard Talmadge and Barbara Bedford.[1]


The story takes place in old Mexico, where a masked rider (Talmadge) and an impoverished girl (Bedford) fall in love, against her father's wishes. When she leaves with him, her father sends his gang in a chase after the two lovers.


Originally intended to be an all-sound film, the picture was shot silent and was distributed with a music and special effects soundtrack, with no dialogue, due to technical issues with the sound synchronization equipment.


Both picture and sound elements for the film no longer exist, so the film is considered to be a lost film.
