*"Flesh and Blood is a 1922 American silent drama film directed by Irving Cummings and starring Lon Chaney, Noah Beery, Edith Roberts and De Witt Jennings.

The popular song, "Just a Song at Twilight" is featured prominently in the film, and was usually performed by the accompanists as the main musical theme for the film. Due to an oversight, the film was never properly copyrighted. The film was rereleased theatrically in 1927. A print of the film is held at the George Eastman House in Rochester, New York. A still exists showing Lon Chaney visiting his daughter at the mission."
