The Glorious Adventure (1922) is a British Prizmacolor feature film directed by J. Stuart Blackton, written by Felix Orman.[1] The film's sets were designed by Walter Murton.[2][3] It was shot at the Cricklewood Studios of Stoll Pictures in London.[4]


Production background[edit]

The film was made entirely in Prizmacolor, and starred Lady Diana Manners, Gerald Lawrence, Cecil Humphreys, and Victor McLaglen. It was released by United Artists. Alma Reville, later married to Alfred Hitchcock, may have co-written the script as well as acting as "script girl".

Neither this film, nor the 1918 film of the same name produced by Samuel Goldwyn, is related to the famous book The Glorious Adventure (1927) by Richard Halliburton.
