Paths to Paradise

Paths to Paradise is a 1925 silent comedy directed by Clarence Badger, produced by Famous Players-Lasky and distributed by Paramount Pictures. The film is based on a 1914 play, The Heart of a Thief, by Paul Armstrong, and stars Raymond Griffith and Betty Compson. The film was lost for many decades until an incomplete print surfaced in the 1970s. Essentially complete, the film is missing its final reel, which is usually filled in with synopsis by historians and film fans.[1][2][3]
