John Gilbert



     Jerome Storm began directing drama in 1918 with the C. Gardner Sullivan screenplay "The Keys of the Righteous", starring Enid Bennett and produced by Thomas Ince. In 1923 he directed John Gilbert and Ruth Clifford in the six reel film "Truxton King". The Library of Congress reports no archival copies of the  film, leaving it presumed to be lost.
During 1923 John Gilbert also appeared in the film "Cameo Kirby", directed by John Ford. In the film, Gilbert plays romantic lead to actress Gertrude Olmstead.

     An early film starring John Gilbert and Norma Shearer, "The Wolfman", directed by Edmund Mortimer in 1924 is among the myriad of films thought to be lost from the silent era.
