Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Long before he became the beloved blowhard of many a Preston Sturges film, Robert Warwick was a handsome, virile Broadway leading man. The Dollar Mark is one of several pre-1920 films to star Warwick in his prime. The story concerns a crooked financial scheme and a run on a bank. It culminates with a convincing thrill sequence involving a bursting dam. According to contemporary reviews, The Dollar Mark would have been better with less plot and more action.
