The Village Blacksmith is a 1922 American drama film directed by John Ford and produced and distributed by Fox Film Corporation. One of the eight reels survives at the UCLA Film and Television Archive, and therefore the film is considered to be lost.[1][2] It was adapted from the poem of the same name by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
